Rejecting the allegation levelled by PTI Senator Azam Swati in his press conference that the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) officials picked him up and later handed him over to the men belonging to some other institution, Interior Minister Rana Sanaullah said this categorically on Friday that the PTI senator was in the custody of FIA only, reported 24NewsHD TV channel.
Addressing a press conference in Islamabad, he said that if any such thing happened, the FIA itself and he was responsible for that.
“I have myself studied Swati’s case. You can ask the additional director FIA and the FIA Cyber Crime director sitting alongside me,” the minister said, adding, “But things have changed now as people could now distinguish between the right and the wrong.”
The interior minister said that complete medical examination of the PTI leader was done after his arrest.
He rejected the reports that Swati was not treated well while he was in the custody of the FIA officials.
He further said that former prime minister and PTI Chairman Imran Khan neither cared about his own self-esteem nor of others.
He further said that Imran was pursuing anti-Pakistan agenda as he was misguiding the country’s youth.
Sanaullah also slammed the PTI leaders for what he called attacking the state institutions. “Their loose talk is neither constitutional nor is it within the confines of morality,” he said, adding these people are constantly telling lies to the nation.”
But now, he added, it was time to stop the propagation of falsehood and tell truth to the nation.
The minister, on the occasion, read out the controversial tweet by Swati against the army chief and the state institutions.
In an attempt to downplay PTI’s long march, he said, “Is this what you are seeing on your television screens today called a long march?”
He also told Imran that his threatening tone was not going to do any harm either to him or to the Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) Director General (DG).
