Interior ministry denies news about minister’s fake bank accounts


ISLAMABAD: The news aired on a local news outlet about a discussion between the Caretaker Interior Minister Muhammad Azam and Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) Director General (DG) about fake bank accounts case was baseless and contrary to facts, said a spokesman of the interior ministry in a statement on Thursday.

The spokesman said that no such discussion had taken place between the caretaker interior minister and FIA DG.

“The remarks attributed to the caretaker interior minister about the arrest of Anwar Majeed were a pack of lies,” he added.

“The interior ministry never interfered in an ongoing investigation,” he said adding the matter comes in the ambit of investigation agency.
