He said: “My son Qari Abdul Basit, and two security guards Zubair and Talha were setting in room. Zubair and Talha were cleaning the weapon and suddenly a fire take place and his son who was studying got killed.”

Regarding the pardoning of his son’s murderers, he said: “Abdul Basit was working as Achive Director in the past 14 months when I was appointed as intelligence director. But till the time of his martyrdom nobody in the office knew that he is my son. We were arranging his wedding in 15 days before he got martyred.”

He said the purpose behind the pardon of his son’s murderers was to set an example for others so that other people stop taking revenge and take one another in huge instead of promoting bloodshed.
