IK’s arrest not on cards but statements may land him in jail: Sanaullah
London: Interior Minister Rana Sanaullah said that although Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf Chairman Imran Khan’s arrest is not on cards, his statements are forcing him to think otherwise.
“At this moment, I am not in favour of having Imran arrested. However, when [I hear] kind of statements that he’s making, I am forced to think that he should be arrested,” Sanaullah told journalists here. “He should be arrested once so that we can witness kind of storm he claims of wanting to unleash,” he said, who Khan has blamed for being involved in his Wazirabad assassination bid.
However, Minister has categorically rejected allegations. Sanaullah said that first information report which includes sedition charge against PTI Senior Vice President Fawad Chaudhry was not objectionable.
“People who are claiming that case was made for victimisation should read FIR. They’ll get to know that Election Commission had it registered,” Sanaullah noted. “Election Commission took action against Fawad Chaudhry after he spoke against it,” he said.
