Provinces Take Measures To Open Roads And Motorways Under Their Jurisdiction: Rana Sanaullah

Islamabad: Interior Minister Rana Sana Ullah Khan has emphasized on provincial governments to fulfill their duties according to law and constitution and take measures to open roads and motorways under their jurisdiction.

Addressing a news conference in Islamabad on Tuesday, he said provincial governments of Punjab and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa have been reminded in written about their responsibilities.

The Interior Minister said PTI chief Imran Khan has created difficulties for people and his fitna march has been completely rejected by the people.

To a question about journalist Arshad Sharif’s murder case, he said the inquiry team has briefed him in detail about development of the case.

Rana Sana Ullah said there is need to further investigate the matter. He said we are hopeful to reach the culprits very soon.

Responding to a question regarding Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif’s letter to the Chief Justice of Pakistan for forming a full court commission, the minister — without going into details — said: “The letter from the prime minister, according to my information, has been sent to the chief justice of Pakistan.”

The minister, when talking about the return of the investigative team from Kenya, said that he has sought a briefing regarding the findings.

“There are certain things that require additional probe, which is why I have asked the team to go to Dubai and look into matters. I would request the foreign office to seek data from the Kenyan government or ambassador. I would even make this request personally if I get a chance to meet them,” he said adding that as far as the prima facie details are concerned, it has been established that Arshad Sharif was killed in a targeted attack.

The minister added the matter of “mistaken identity” has not been proven and remains doubtful. Sanaullah said that the two brothers Waqar and Khurram will not be out of the investigation.

He further shared that the two-member team has worked hard on the case in detail.

“We do not want to say anything which could increase the pain of Arshad Sharif’s mother,” the minister said, adding that those who shot the journalist knew who Sharif was and where he was sitting.

He added that prima facie Sharif’s murder seems like it was done in connivance.
