The spokesperson said that the ministry and its various departments including, the Islamabad police, did not have any access either to the offices of the JIT or the proceedings or its video recording.
“Islamabad police or the interior ministry has no role in the administrative matters of the academy,” the spokesperson said, regretting the way politics was being played on a sensitive issue.
“If for instance one believes such logic, then should we hold Islamabad police responsible for all that takes place in Imran Khan’s Bani Gala residence as ICT police provides security to Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf chairman,” the statement added.
