JIT summons Azam Swati in encroachment probe today
ISLAMABAD - A joint investigation team (JIT) formed by the Supreme Court has summoned Azam Swati today in its ongoing investigation into alleged misuse of authority, misconduct, and encroachment by the federal minister.

The apex court issued orders for the formation of the investigation body while hearing a suo motu notice pertaining to the ‘unlawful’ transfer of Islamabad police chief Jan Muhammad.

It emerged on October 27 that the government had allegedly transferred the IG Muhammad after he did not take action on a complaint filed by the federal minister for Science and Technology regarding a brawl over purported encroachment with a family at their farmhouse.

The members of the probe team include National Accountability Bureau’s (NAB) Director Irfan Mangi, Intelligence Bureau (IB) official Ahmed Rizwan and Federal Investigation Agency’s (FIA) Mirvais Niaz.

Local media citing sources claimed that the JIT has prepared a questionnaire in light of its findings so far, and has summoned Swati for grilling today.

The JIT has already grilled Minister of State for Interior Shehryar Afridi and other government officials in the IGP transfer case.
