Police recovered on Friday illegal weapons from Member of Provincial Assembly (MPA) Gohar Nawaz’s house in Haripur, Express News reported.
Nawaz contested as an independent candidate in the 2013 elections and subsequently joined the Qaumi Watan Party.
Acting on a tip-off, police conducted a raid at the MPA’s residence in the early Friday morning, where illegal weapons were recovered. Soon after the operation, the weapons were inspected by police officials.
A First Information Report is also expected to be registered. The MPA has made no statement on the matter as yet.
Nawaz is the younger brother of the late Awami National Party MPA and former transport minister Akhtar Nawaz Khan.
Just last month, Nawaz had denied being involved in malpractice in the Senate elections held lately.
