ISLAMABAD:

Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) leader Aitzaz Ahsan on Thursday alleged that senior journalist Arshad Sharif was killed as part of a plan.

Speaking to the media, he said that the brutal manner in which he was killed suggests that “someone was very angry with him”.

Sharif was also an asset of the establishment, he claimed. He also called on Interior Minister Rana Sanaullah to present the evidence for his allegations.

He also questioned how the FIR in Sharif’s case was registered at the behest of the police in the presence of his mother. “The police can only become plaintiffs of the abandoned victims,” he pointed out.
