KARACHI: Reacting over the arrest of Awami National Party leader Mian Iftikhar Hussaun, former president and Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) co-chairman Asif Ali Zardari has termed the move a reflection of dictatorial mindset of the provincial government.

In a statement issued by the spokesman of the former president, Zardari has demanded of the KP government to release Mian Iftikhar Hussain and Liaquat Shabab, quashing “fake cases” registered against them.

Condemning the arrest, Mr Zardari asked Pervez Khattak to keep in view consequences of “political vendetta “.

Zardari advised the KP chief minister not to become blind by intoxication of power.

Former provincial minister Iftikhar Hussain was taken into custody from his office on charges of murder and conspiracy for murder.
