JIT rejects accusations of Shahid Masood regarding Zainab’s convict

An investigation committee, formed to probe the accusations of anchorperson Dr Shahid Masood regarding the convict Imran in Zainab murder case, submitted its report in the Supreme Court on Thursday.
The committee has termed 18 accusations leveled by the anchorperson as baseless.
The report says that no evidence linking Imran to international mafia and affiliation to political personality had been found.
Masood, in his show, alleged that Zainab’s rapist and murderer was a member of an international pornography ring. He further stated that the convict had 37 foreign currency bank accounts.
He claimed that Imran had links with a federal minister and prominent personality in the country.
Punjab government’s spokesperson Malik Ahmad Khan categorically dismissed reckless allegations of Dr. Shahid Masood while terming them an attempt to belittle the provincial government’s efforts.
While terming Masood’s allegations a figment of him, Khan stated that State Bank of Pakistan (SBP) thoroughly scrutinized local and international data and didn’t find any account linked to Imran.
