ISLAMABAD – Interior Minister Chaudhary Nisar Ali Khan says inquiry committee to probe publication of a controversial news story about a national security meeting will be constituted within two days.

Talking to newsmen in Islamabad on Saturday, he said a retired High Court Judge will head the committee.

He said the committee will comprise senior honest officers who have excellent professional career.

Interior Minister said that the probe of a ‘concocted’ story published in English newspaper will not be against former Information Minister Pervaiz Rashid.

According to Nisar, the committee would be allowed to work in a free and transparent manner.

On October 29,  Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif took back the Ministry of Information, Broadcasting and National Heritage from Pervaiz Rashid.
