Six death anniversary of national hero Aitzaz Hassan was observed on Monday to pay rich tribute to him for his immense sacrifice in saving hundreds of lives on his fifth death anniversary. Student of grade IX, Aitzaz Hassan sacrificed his life to save hundreds of children as a suicide bomber blew himself up in front of the gate of his school in Hangu in 2014. In an attempt to stop suicide bomber from entering the school, the brave teenager ran towards him and grabbed him. In the scuffle between Hassan and the bomber, the explosives went off, killing the terrorist and Hassan. He was later awarded the Sitara-e-Shujaat for the act of bravery.—INP
