ISLAMABAD (APP): Prime Minister Muhammad Nawaz Sharif Saturday said the perpetrators, behind the murder of Mashaal Khan , should know that the state would not tolerate citizens taking the law in their own hands.

The Prime Minister expressed his shock and sadness over the senseless display of mob justice at the Wali Khan University Mardan that resulted in the murder of a young student, Mashaal Khan .

He said the police have been directed to apprehend those responsible in the act.

"No father should have to send his child off to be educated with the fear of having him returned in a coffin," the PM office media wing in a press release quoted the Prime Minister as saying.

The Prime Minister urged the nation to stand united to condemn this crime and to promote tolerance and rule of law in the society.
