Senior journalist Imran Riaz was offloaded from a flight from Lahore to Dubai. The journalist’s name was added to the black list by the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) on the request of the police. Senior police officials have been informed of the removal of the journalist from the flight and his attempt to leave the country.
Chakwal police arrested journalist Imran Riaz Khan from Attock district judicial complex soon after a judge, in an early morning verdict, dismissed a treason case against the anchorperson and ordered his release for lack of sufficient evidence. Earlier, the judge had rejected an application by Chakwal police to hand over the anchorperson to their custody as he did not “adhere to legal procedures”.
