KARACHI: Former Sindh home minister Zulfiqar Mirza said on Monday that he had wanted to investigate the October 18 attack but federal Interior Minister Rehman Malik had “misguided” President Asif Zardari and stopped him.
Talking to the media at his house, Mirza said that when he insisted Malik had said, “The October 18 investigation will create problems for us. Let us investigate December 27 before jumping into the October 18 incidents, otherwise we would not be able to expose the real culprits involved in BB’s assassination.”
He said that some people allegedly involved in switching off the lights on Sharae Faisal were arrested but later released.
