An FIR has been registered against over 150 people for attacking the temple under terrorism and other sections of the Pakistan Penal Code (PPC). Minority member Ravi Kumar moved a motion in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa's provincial assembly to condemn the attack on the Hindu temple, which was unanimously accepted by the House on Friday.

This proposal was introduced by Human Rights and Parliamentary Affairs Minister Shaukat Yousafzai.
