ISLAMABAD: The Federal Investigation Agency has arrested PTI Senator Saifullah Nyazee in a foreign funding case, sources told Geo News on Friday.

Sources say the senator was arrested for the $625,000 transferred to the Insaf Trust account in 2013 against the rules and regulations.

Officials, who spoke on the condition of anonymity, shared that the senator was arrested outside his home as he was leaving for the Senate session.

The FIA is yet to issue a statement on the arrest. However, sources said that an inquiry was already ongoing against the senator and he failed to submit a satisfactory reply on the transferred amount.

They added that the arrest was made after the FIA found proof against the senator.

Meanwhile, FIA has also arrested PTI’s founder member Hamid Zaman from his office in the foreign funding case. 

PTI claims senator ‘picked up’ from Senate premises

PTI Secretary General Asad Umar claimed on Friday that his party’s Senator Saifullah Nyazee had been “picked up” from the premises of the Senate.

The former minister claimed that the “worst kind of facisim” was happening in the country.

Umar made the claims to a tweet by PTI leader Iftikhar Durrani.

Durrani, who was a special assistant when Imran Khan was the prime minister, claimed that the senator was ”kidnapped”. He had shared that the senator’s home was attacked previously and some items were taken from him.
