Family: Bibi Rabia (widow), Tahir Zaman, Anwar Zaman, Mohammad Zaman, Ahmad Khan

“Akbar was a very pleasant man,” says his widow, Bibi Rabia.

He had a soft disposition and would always advise his sons and cousins to keep away from disputes.

Akbar had joined the Pakistan Army’s Electrical and Mechanical Engineering department in 1983 as a clerk and moved to the Army Public School after retiring in 2006.

He was admired by all the members of his village and even now everyone fondly remembers him.

Akbar had made it a point to bring back gifts from Peshawar for all the kids in the family when he would visit native Lakki Marwat for holidays.

He was as a highly-dedicated employee who gave his life while performing his duty.
