Malik Riaz Planted Interview Leaked With Mehar Bukhari and Mubashir Luqman

ISLAMABAD: Despite the Supreme Court's clear orders to take action against Malik Riaz, Salman Ahmed Khan and Dr Arsalan Iftikhar only, the Attorney General has, on his own, added the "family" of Dr Arsalan into the circle of his investigations.

This has been done despite the categorical statements of Bahria Town chief that he had not received any benefit from Chief Justice Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry who, in fact, did not give him any relief in his cases. But the PPP government and its attorney general are still trying to involve the family of the Chief Justice.

This became evident in a press release issued by Attorney General Irfan Qadir, which said that he will consult top officials regarding action to be taken against Dr Arsalan Iftikhar “and his family” obviously referring to the family of the Chief Justice of Pakistan.
