Minister for Interior Sheikh Rasheed on Tuesday said that the authorities are closing in on a suspect involved in the attack on journalist Asad Ali Toor.
During a press conference in Islamabad, the interior minister said he is confident the authorities will “uncover the truth soon”.
Revealing that National Database & Registration Authority (NADRA), Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) and the police are working together on the case, he said that fingerprint tracing is currently underway and that the suspects can be seen for an extended time on closed-circuit television footage, which has helped in the investigation.
“If we are unable to trace the three suspects involved, we will put out ads for them,” he said.
Rasheed said that a person at the reception of the building where Toor resides told authorities that “the people involved had visited earlier as well”, which is why they were not stopped.
Speaking of the Opposition’s Pakistan Democratic Movement, he said that it is nothing but an alliance of two parties now. “Only Fazlur Rehman and the PML-N are left.”
