Army Chief orders inquiry into ‘Karachi Incident’ regarding Capt Safdar

News Desk: 

Chief of Army Staff (COAS), General Qamar Javed Bajwa has ordered an inquiry into events related to the arrest of Captain (R) Safdar. Safdar – the son-in-law of former prime minister Nawaz Sharif – was arrested from a hotel room in Karachi Monday morning for allegedly disrespecting the mausoleum of the Founder of the Nation, only to be released by a court hours later.

“Taking notice of Karachi incident, the COAS has directed Karachi Corps Commander to immediately inquire into the circumstances to determine the facts and report back as soon as possible,” a statement issued by the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) said.

The COAS took notice minutes after PPP Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari demanded General Qamar and ISI DG Lt Gen Faiz Hameed to investigate the matter as to how Sindh police chief was pressurized into registering a case against PML-N leader captain retired Safdar.
