Meanwhile the Islamabad Capital Territory (ICT) Police on Sunday slammed the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan for his ‘threats and allegations’ against the department.
Responding to the allegations on Sunday, the capital police said that it will “continue to perform its duties diligently” and that “anyone making threats and allegations will be dealt with according to the law”.
