Son of Mr Tariq Jan and Mrs Shagufta Tariq

For the most part, Nangyal Tariq was a sober child but he would on occasion crack jokes to make his family members laugh. He showed a keen interest in studies and wanted to become an Army Captain.

He liked experimenting with his hair, and would often come up new hairstyles, his mother says. He also loved collecting antiques.

Nangyal was affectionately called Sher Khan, and loved being addressed by his pet name. His family says that if he was ever unresponsive, the trick was to call him 'Sher Khan' and get his attention.
