The FIA Cyber Crime Wing raided the house of PTI leader Senator Saifullah Niazi and confiscated his laptop, phone and other gadgets, reported 24NewsHD TV channel on Wednesday.

Sources said that the FIR team raided the house of the PTI senator last night and took into possession his laptop, mobile phone and other devices. 

Sources said that a website with the title of ‘Na Manzoor’ was being operated from the residence of Senator Saifullah. 

The FIA has got search warrants from the Islamabad judicial magistrate beforehand to conduct the raid, sources concluded. 

PTI Chairman Imran Khan denounced the government’s move to raid the house of Saifullah Niazi saying that the imported government and handlers were pushing the PTI to the wall while warning that there would be consequences. 

Imran posted a tweet writing: Their desperation led to their blacking out our Telethon for flood relief. Today they raided Senator Saif Nyazee's home & took away his cell & computer. Imported govt & handlers are pushing us to the wall. I am warning them there will be consequences they will have to face.

“On the one hand Imported govt telling us to stop doing politics bec of floods & on the other hand they are increasing their level of harassment & false cases against us, persecuting journalists who give our views a voice, suspending TV channels & YouTube to prevent my coverage.”

Condemning the raid, former information minister and PTI leader Fawad Chaudhry tweeted: 

“Saifullah Niazi is a senator. Raiding his house, taking away his laptop and phone and harassing him is another achievement of this so-called government. We vehemently condemn this outrageous act. Immediate action should be taken in this regard by the Senate chairman and other relevant authorities.”
