Taking to the social networking website, ‘Twitter’, Fawad Chaudhry said that “PM Imran Khan was unware of any such FIR against Nawaz Sharif, when I informed him about the case, he expressed immense displeasure.”


The minister said that maybe someone wanted to implicate the former prime minister in a case.


Special Assistant to Prime Minister on Political Communication Dr Shahbaz Gill, in his tweet, said that filing treason cases against politicians was not his government policy, adding that PML-N government had been using these tactics in its tenure.

The FIR did not contain any clause of terrorism, he said and added that sedition clause was added in the case.
