Islamabad, Jan 14 (IANS) Cricketer-turned-Pakistani politician Imran Khan and his wife faced protests Wednesday when they visited the school in Peshwar where terrorists massacred over 140 children Dec 16.

Families of the children who were massacred shouted slogans against the Tehreek-e-Insaf leader as he reached the Army Public School, the Dawn and other Pakistani media reported.
Accompanying Imran Khan was Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa Chief Minister Pervez Khattak, who is from the same party.
Holding posters and banners, the parents tried to stop Khan’s vehicle from entering the school premises.
The demonstrators complained that it took Khan a month to come to Peshawar after the massacre.
Meanwhile, Pakistan Information Minister Pervaiz Rashid said Khan faced slogans of “Go Imran, Go!” because of his negative approach in politics.
He accused Khan of creating hurdles in the way of implementing the national agenda against terrorism.
On Dec 16, terrorists stormed the school in Peshawar and sprayed bullets, leaving more than 140 students and teachers dead.
