The Interior Ministry has issued a rebuttal, saying media reports of Federal Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan's resignation is baseless.
“Circulation of such news without revealing sources is incorrect,” an interior ministry spokesperson said in a statement on Friday evening. He requested media organisations not to circulate rumours regarding the resignation.

According to Express News, Chaudhry Nisar will hold a press conference on Sunday at 5pm at Punjab House in which he will clear his position in the wake of current political crisis emerged after the Joint Investigation Team (JIT), probing alleged overseas assets owned by the Sharif family, submitted its report to the Supreme Court.
However, the spokesperson went on to say that the subject of interior minster’s upcoming press conference will be revealed on Sunday.
The interior minister expressed annoyance with the media for running ‘incorrect’ news stories that he had exchanged harsh words with Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif during July 13 cabinet meeting.
