Sindh announces to form ministers’ committee to investigate Safdar’s arrest
KARACHI: Sindh Chief Minister Murad Ali Shah on Tuesday announced that the Sindh government will form a committee comprising three to five ministers to investigate the incident of Pakistan Muslim League-N (PML-N) leader Captain (retd) Safdar’s arrest for alleged violation of sanctity of Quaid’s Mausoleum.
“Every stakeholder will be summoned to the meeting and our point of view would be presented. If I said something now it would affect the inquiry. We will hold inquiry to bring forward the truth and expose the conspiracy,” Murad Ali Shah said while addressing a press conference in this regard.
Waqas, who lodged the FIR against Safdar, was an absconder and most wanted suspect, who had got protective bail from the court just today, he said. The complainant claimed that he was present at the mausoleum when the alleged violation of sanctity of mausoleum took place, he said.
The chief minister said that the Sindh government had reservations over the manner in which Safdar was arrested. A federal minister was also involved in the matter, he alleged saying that an elected representative should not be involved in such a matter because it was not a political matter and law was applicable on all.
Murad Shah said the police was pressurized to act swiftly against the PML-N leader. He however admitted that whatever happened at Mohammed Ali Jinnah’s resting place was inappropriate.
He said the entire country was on the same page against inflation and unemployment. The failed that the government would not run anymore, he said.
