Ziaullah Afridi’s arrest being challenged in high court



The arrest of provincial minister for mineral development, Ziaullah Afridi, was challenged before the Peshawar High Court on Monday, by the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Ehtesab Commission (KPEC).

The commission also arrested director (administration) of the department Mir Zaman in the case.

He will be produced before an ehtesab court today (Tuesday) for his physical custody.

Prior to the arrest of Ziaullah Afridi on July 9, the commission had held director general of the mineral development department Dr Liaquat Ali over illegal mining.

Ali has been in custody since then.
