Inter Services Public Relations (ISPR) Director General Major General Babar Iftikhar Wednesday reject claims suggesting former finance minister Shaukat Tarin was asked to help Shebaz Sharif-led coalition government.
In a statement, ISPR DG said the insinuations by Shaheen Sehbai and some others on social media quoting the Former Finance Minister are baseless propaganda.
“The same has also been duly rebutted by Mr Shaukat Tarin himself. Peddling malicious allegations and blatant lies against the institution and its leadership to promote vested interests is condemnable and institution reserves the right to take legal action against those involved,” said Maj Gen Babar Iftikhar.
Earlier, Shaukat Tarin also took Twitter to rebut the claim made by Sehbai.
“I categorically deny what has been attributed to me by Shaheen Sebhai. I was never asked by anyone in the establishment to leave IK and join Shahbaz Shareef govt,” he wrote.

Earlier, veteran journalist Sehbai had made allegations that suggested that COAS Qamar Javed Bajwa had asked Tarin to leave Imran Khan and help the new government.
