The investigation agencies were conducting an inquiry regarding former Inter-Services Intelligence chief Lt Gen (retd) Faiz Hamid, revealed by Interior Minister Rana Sanaullah.
The Interior minister shared the information while holding a press conference in Islamabad, after the imposition of Section 144 in Lahore ahead of Aurat March and Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf’s (PTI) election rally.

He said that whatever was being done was required and PTI Chairman Imran Khan will be arrested when need be.
Moreover, the interior Minister requested Jamat-e-Islami (JI) to organize Haya March on March 7 or 9, instead of March 8 when there are several events, including the Aurat March, which is held on account of International Women’s Day
“Aurat March is taking place on March 8, our mothers and sisters are marching in it,” he said, adding that the day holds immense importance for the women.
He said that the women take to the streets to highlight two separate narratives.
