Imran Khan responsible for Sindh IG’s abduction: Abbasi

Shahid Khaqan Abbasi – the former prime minister and a PML-N senior leader – on Thursday said the two agencies besieging the Sindh IG’s residence were under the Centre and answerable to the prime minister, reported 24NewsHD TV channel.

As the controversy triggered by the abduction of the provincial police chief and resultant arrest of Capt Safdar rages on, Abbasi said, “The Centre attacked the province.” He added that the prime minister was responsible for the episode. 

The former premier said “The province’s authority and constitutional status had been violated.

“Who gave the unlawful orders? Who implemented [the orders], violated the Constitution?” he questioned at a press conference in Islamabad.

Repeating the stance that Sindh IG Mushtaq Mahar had been kidnapped and pressured for registering the FIR, the former prime minister said, “This issue won’t stop here. Why the judiciary, which takes suo motu notice on every issue, is silent on this matter.”

Blasting the prime minister, Abbasi said Imran repeated the statement of not giving NRO day and night, but he was the one who gave the biggest ever NRO to Kulbhushan Jadhav and sold Kashmir.

On the other hand, JUI-F chief Maulana Fazl-ur-Rehman, during a media talk at Jamia Islamia in Larkana, too commented on the issue and said that any kind of supremacy [of some institutions] was unacceptable to them. “The supremacy of invisible forces is not acceptable at any cost.” 

He warned that the bails of the Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) would soon be cancelled and added that the NAB could not be tolerated in the current situation.

Fazl said they had spent lives on how to fight martial law and added that actions like the kidnapping of Sindh IG would spread anger across the country.

“Those who have been held responsible for the incident will now also conduct an inquiry and then that inquiry report would be accepted,” he remarked.

The JUI-F chief, who is also the head of the recently formed PDM, told reporters that Imran Khan wanted an NRO but they [the opposition] won’t give him any.

He said PPP Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari’s visit to Gilgit-Baltistan had been scheduled earlier, adding that it was up to PML-N supremo Nawaz Sharif to address the rally in Quetta on Sunday.
