The Sindh Chief Minister has termed case against Captain Safdar as fake and ordered ministerial probe into the subject matter.
The Sindh CM admitted that Captain Safdar committed violation of the sanctity of Mazar-e-Quaid . He stated that respect and sanctity of the mausoleum was not a political issue as rule of law applies on everyone.
Police, he said, was pressurized by Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf as one federal minister had said that he would see who dared to refuse registration of an FIR. He also said that a man namely Waqas was forced and threatened to lodge FIR. PTI MPAs were also present with Waqas in the police station. He stated that Waqas had asked for registration of an FIR over receiving threats.
“Waqas, Bugti and Nadeem Chandio held a meeting and planned to use the incident at Mazar-e- Quaid for nefarious purposes,” said the Chief Minister. Murad Ali Shah said that elected representatives should not play any role in pressurizing police and vowed to expose the conspiracy behind the arrest after complete inquiry.
