The videotape of the confession of the accused was also played in the news conference.

The minister said that the security agencies were being accused of the killing of Irshad Mastoi and some other notables but the arrest of the culprits has proved the allegations baseless.

The minister said that a plan was being hatched for the murder of JUI Balochistan’s leader Hafiz Hamdullah.
