In a significant development, the Ministry of Interior has approved the issuance of a red warrant for prominent PTI leader and former federal minister for overseas Pakistanis, Zulfi Bukhari.
The ministry directed the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) to forward a formal request to the Interpol Secretariat in France, seeking the issuance of a red warrant for Bukhari.
The move is part of efforts to arrest and extradite him to Pakistan for his alleged involvement in a case registered under the Anti-Terrorism Act at Golra police station on March 18.
The case against Zulfi Bukhari stems from his participation in the PTI’s “Jail Bharo Tehreek,” which commenced on February 22. He was the first to court arrest as part of the party’s protest, but subsequently left the country.
Former interior minister Rana Sanaullah had alleged that Bukhari and two other PTI leaders departed the country as part of a conspiracy. In response, Bukhari vehemently denied these claims and criticised Sanaullah’s allegations.
Bukhari stated, “I’m putting up my departure details and the airport. I left for business and was scheduled to return on 6th May. It doesn’t take this much effort and airtime to figure it out,” in response to Sanaullah’s comments made during a TV show.
