Director General Intelligence Bureau (IB) Aftab Sultan, the law minister along with several members of parliament allegedly investigated by IB for links to terror outfits met with Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbassi here on Friday.
The director general IB once again gave a clarification that the bureau is not responsible for the list, which purportedly names lawmakers with links to terrorists and was alleged to have been sent to IB by Prime Minister House when Nawaz Sharif was in office.
The lawmakers named in the list informed the prime minister that it could create a lot of issues for them since their opponents could use it to form cases and claim they were not fit to hold public office under Articles 62 and 63 of the Constitution, sources said.
They demanded that the government inform the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Ministry of Interior and the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) that the list is fake so they are protected from any action based on it.
