The nephew of Federal Minister for Religious Affairs and Interfaith Harmony Pir Noorul Haq Qadri was alleged of his involvement in a luxury car robbery case in Islamabad, local media reported.
According to the report, Qadri’s nephew Zulkafal Qadri was nominated in FIR of the case in which a luxury vehicle worth Rs 15 million owned by the son of a local trader was snatched in Islamabad.
In the FIR lodged in Shalimar police station, complainant Amjad Saeed alleged that his son was subjected to brutal torture by the minister’s nephew and armed guards. He added that the attackers also tried to abduct his son.
Responding to the case, the federal minister refuted the allegations and said that his nephew was not involved in any robbery.
