ISLAMABAD: Minister for Interior and Narcotics Control, Chaudhary Nisar Ali Khan on Friday expressed concern over arrest of anchor Iqrar-ul-Hasan in Karachi.

In a statement issued here, the Minister said Federal and Provincial governments should learn a lesson and get guidance instead of showing an annoyance on such a sting operation.

Interior minister added Iqrar-ul-Hassan is active and efficient journalist but he was misbehaved rather getting an appreciation which is inappropriate. Sting operations are common in the world but Iqrar-ul- Hassan was misbehaved in Karachi.

Ch. Nisar directed Secretary Interior to contact Inspector General of Police, Sindh to settle the matter in a positive manner.

As per details, in a sting operation, Private news anchor Iqrar-ul-Hasan entered the Sindh assembly building along with one of the crew members carrying a pistol, without being checked by the security guards.

Sindh Interior Minister, instead of addressing the opposition’s concerns, requested the speaker to order arrest of armed man and his team members.
