LAHORE: Former chief justice Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry's son, Dr Arsalan Iftikhar on Saturday pulled the plug on rumour mills that had been bustling over an alleged incident with Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) MNA Murad Saeed during the recording of a talk show on Friday.

While appearing on Express News show, Takrar with host Imran Khan, Dr Arsalan admitted that hot words had been exchanged between him and MNA Saeed, but denied that any physical altercation took place.

Rumours spread on Friday suggested that MNA Saeed had became so agitated from alleged abuses hurled against PTI chief Imran Khan by Dr Arsalan, that the MNA slapped the former chief justice's son.

On Saturday both Arsalan and Saeed separately denied this.

"We only exchanged hot words at the talk show," Arsalan said. He continued that had anyone slapped him, he would have retaliated as well since he is not one to sit and take a beating quietly.

On allegations that he abused the PTI chief, Dr Arsalan said, "Imran Khan used unparliamentary language against my father."

Separately, Saeed denied slapping the former chief justice's son and clarified his position through his Twitter account. Murad said that Dr Arsalan was abusing his party chief and demanded an apology.

But Saeed too denied the 'slaps'.

Appointment as vice chairman BIB

After resigning from his recent appointment as vice chairman of Balochistan Investment Board, Dr Arsalan clarified that the federal government was not involved in his appointment.

"I cooperated with the Balochistan government for a good cause." He also added that to bring investment in Balochistan he used his personal contacts.
