I did not name Mian Iftikhar in FIR, says slain worker’s father
NOWSHERA (92 News) – Slain Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf’s (PTI) worker Habibullah’s father Sher Alam on Monday denied nominating Awami National Party (ANP) Central Secretary General Mian Iftikhar in the murder FIR.
As per reports, Sher Alam said that Iftikhar is not involved in his son’s murder. While recording his statement in the court, he said that he had not nominated the ANP leader in the case.
Meanwhile, ANP workers raised slogans outside the court against the provincial government and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) Chief Minister (CM) Pervez Khatak. Talking to the media after the court hearing, Iftikhar said that he is not involved in the murder of political party’s worker and is thankful to the people who are supporting him in the matter. “I thank everyone who supported me. Be it Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam-Fazl (JUI-F) chief Fazlur Rehamn, Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) Co-Chairman Asif Ali Zardari, Prime Minister (PM) Nawaz Sharif, Chaudhary Nisar, Imran Khan and everyone else,” he said. “I will make sure to find the culprits behind Habibullah’s killing.”
However, the court sent the ANP leader on a one-day judicial remand. He will be presented before court tomorrow (Tuesday).
