Anchor Imran Riaz sent to jail in corruption case

The Anti-Corruption Establishment (ACE) requested physical remand on Friday, but a Lahore district and sessions court denied it. Instead, anchor Imran Riaz Khan was placed in jail on judicial remand.

After the conclusion of a corruption case against Imran Riaz Khan by Judicial Magistrate Imran Abid, a decision was issued.

Imran defended himself during the hearings by saying, “The authorities are lying about the contract in question.” He said, “The previous contract was Rs11 million, and I took the contract for Rs4 million.”

Yesterday, Imran Riaz Khan was taken from his Lahore home. Officials investigating corruption claim that Imran Riaz and his father obtained the Tharabi Lake contract for a significantly smaller price.

As it started digging into the social media campaign against the judges of the higher judiciary, the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) Cyber Wing invited two YouTubers to come before it.

Journalists Asad Toor and Imran Riaz Khan received notifications for inquiry from the FIA Cyber Wing, asking that they attend before the Cyber Crime Reporting Centre in Islamabad and the Cyber Crime Wing office in Lahore, respectively.

The Criminal Procedure Code’s (CrPC) Section 160 has been used to issue the notices. It had been asked that the two YouTubers bring the necessary records. The notices warned that if they did not show up, it would be thought that they had nothing to defend them on.

The veteran journalist was away for more than four months before his “safe” return home in September of last year.

After the May 9 riots, the anchorperson, who was a fervent and outspoken supporter of PTI founder and former prime minister of Pakistan Imran Khan and his policies, was reportedly taken into arrest by the police on May 11.
