No security despite threats to my life: Capt Safdar

As a local court extended his interim bail granted earlier in a case pertaining to the violent clash outside the NAB office in Lahore, Capt Safdar on Friday said his life was under threat but police were not providing security to him amid the pressure being exerted on the top officers.

Talking to media, Safdar, the son-in-law of the three-time prime minister Nawaz Sharif, said they were attacked outside the NAB office on August 11 and the vehicle carrying Maryam Nawaz which he was driving had been isolated from the rest as part of a conspiracy.

Safdar said such police officers had been posted in Lahore who could increase pressure on the PML-N. In this connection, he cited the example of Lahore CCPO Umer Sheikh, but reminded them that the officers were the servants of the state of Pakistan.

He said that even an eight-year-old boy, Tanveer, remained detained at a police station. No FIR was lodged on the basis of their application, Safdar said but vowed that they would get a case registered against Prime Minister Imran Khan.

He said Nawaz would not return to Pakistan as per someone’s wish and again called for investigating what substance had been added in the former prime minister’s food which suddenly deteriorated his condition.

“Respect would now have to be given to vote, the Constitution would have to be implemented,” he stressed.

On the other hand, Safdar also visited Data Darbar and prayed for the country and early recovery of Nawaz.

Earlier, the court extended his interim bail till September 16 as the judge rejected the investigation officer’s assertion that all the accused would be interrogated if a time was fixed for the purpose.

In this connection, the judge observed that how all accused could be made to stay in police station when different dates had been assigned to them by the court.
