Minister for Information and Broadcasting Marriyum Aurangzeb on Thursday said the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) should arrest Imran Khan like that of the PML-N leaders who were apprehended on the basis of mere accusations.
“If the FIA can arrest Shehbaz Sharif, Maryam Nawaz, Suleman Shehbaz, Hamza Shehbaz, Ahsan Iqbal, Shahid Khaqan Abbasi, Miftah Ismail and others on the basis of allegations, then why Imran Khan, who used the prohibited funding against the national interest, should be let scot free,” she said while addressing a news conference.
Marriyum said a person (Imran Khan), who refused to appear before the FIA in connection with the prohibited funding, should be jailed.
She also asked all those, who had opened “fake accounts” for receiving the prohibited funding, to appear before the FIA, saying, otherwise, they should be ready for strict action.
The prohibited funding case, she said, would be taken to its logical end and its details would be made public so that the people should know how Imran had “misled” them through "lies and deception".
“The probe in the PTI’s prohibited funding is underway and the FIA has unearthed a big account, whose details will be shared with the public tomorrow,” she remarked.
The minister said the ECP had declared the PTI a foreign-aided party as it used around 351 accounts for receiving the prohibited funding.
