Law enforcement agencies reserve right to thwart any attack on Islamabad: Sanaullah


Interior Minister Rana Sanaullah has warned that Federal Law Enforcement Agencies reserve the right to thwart any attack on Islamabad by any armed group.

Talking to media in Islamabad on Tuesday afternoon, he said Imran Khan Niazi and his misguided activists are trying to spread anarchy and chaos in the country.

He said the Prime Minister has directed that the police and FC personnel would only use teargas and rubber bullets to disperse participants of the long march but according to reports, PTI leadership is accumulating ammunition and armed men to attack the federal capital.

Rana Sanaullah said in view of these reports, federal law enforcement agencies can face a loss and Imran Khan will be responsible for it.

The Interior Minister said the people of Lahore and Gujranwala Divisions have rejected Imran Khan's long-march as only a few hundreds of people could be seen in the long march.

He, however, urged Imran Khan Niazi to shun his agenda of chaos and sit with the political forces of the country to find a political solution of issues. He said Pakistan needs unity not anarchy.

Responding to a question, the Interior Minister said no talks are being held with Imran Khan due to his behaviour and the language he uses against state institutions.

Strongly condemning the statement made by Imran Khan yesterday regarding imposition of martial law in the country, Rana Sanaullah said PTI chief gives irresponsible statements aimed at destabilizing the country.

To another question regarding investigation of Arshad Sharif murder case, the Interior Minister said our team of highly competent officers is in Kenya collecting information related to the case and will present it to the inquiry commission formed for this purpose.
