ISLAMABAD: Real estate tycoon Malik Riaz claimed there were threats against his life, in an application filed in the Supreme Court on Monday seeking security for himself, reported Express News.

Riaz stated in his application that some lawyers had threatened him during the previous hearings of the Arsalan Iftikhar case in the apex court, which is a threat to his life and his fame.

He added that the media is also running a campaign against him, and further appealed that the SC registrar and the law enforcement agencies should be directed to provide him security during the future hearings.

A suo motu was taken against Dr Arsalan Iftikhar and Riaz, following media reports that Iftikhar had received between Rs300 and Rs400 million from Riaz to influence judicial proceedings.

I think Malik Riaz is asking security from prosecution. As for physical security, he is one providing to others. Or is he afraid of "Don Arsalan"?
