He demanded Federal Minister for Narcotics Control Shehryar Afridi to present the video in the court that the latter had claimed of. The video showed him accusing the former.
“If this is the case, then the video must be submitted to the court to back up the minister’s claim,“ he added, while claiming that the Lahore High Court (LHC), in its decision on his post bail plea, he claimed that it was not possible to rule out the possibility of “political retaliation” in the case.
The leader of the PML-N also condemned law enforcement agencies for refusing media reporters entry to the case, claiming that they have the right to observe the trial.
