In a latest proceedings to the internal turmoil of PTA, Syed Nasrul Karim Ghaznavi (Member Finance) and Dr. Khawar Siddique Khokhar (Member Technical) were visited by 7 men who claimed to be from the FIA and who supposedly had orders to arrest them and take them to the Secretariat Police Station Islamabad. Two of the seven were in police uniforms while the rest five were in casual wear. They said that there were cases filed against MF and MT and they were required to be brought to the Police Station.
The seven men entered the respective offices of member finance and member technical, took their mobile phones, harassed them and tried to arrest them. Ghaznavi and Khokhar resisted and asked for proper authentication and warrants which they could not provide. In the heat of the affair, Syed Ghaznavi was grabbed from the arm and dragged to the door as well. Both Ghaznavi and Khokhar called the higher authorities via landline phones and within a few minutes the seven men got calls on their mobiles and vanished quickly.
It is to be noted that no outsiders of such kind are allowed to enter the PTA but managed to do so because of the aid of Sajjad Latif Khan. Sources inform that Khan was leading the action against the members and was the 8th person in their offices. Khan was previously made OSD but not barred from coming to office. Syed Ghaznavi and Dr. Khokhar are now filing FIR against this assault. The entire PTA staff has gathered around the offices of both members and are supporting to file FIR in the Secretariat Police Station
This action may be due to the grudge of Sajjad Latif Khan who was made OSD on their orders. It can also be a retaliation from the parties who are unhappy that both members stood in the way of 3G auctioning which would have been a multibillion dollar prospect. The fakeness of the men suggests that this could have been an attempt to abduct Member finance and technical.
Update 6.15 pm, 4th Feb 2013
Representatives of both the members have reached the Secretariat Police Station where it was confirmed that those men did not belong to FIA or any agency. There is a huge crowd of supporters of both the member present at the Police Station.
