Lahore: Interior Minister Mohsin Naqvi hinted at potential Indian involvement in the murder of Amir Sarfraz Tamba, known for his alleged involvement in the death of Indian terrorist Sarabjit Singh in 2013. Naqvi made these remarks during a press conference held at the regional office of the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) in Lahore on Monday.

During the press briefing, Naqvi revealed that India had been suspected in four similar murders prior to Tamba's killing. He stated that the police were currently investigating the circumstances surrounding Tamba's shooting, with initial suspicions pointing towards India. Tamba was fatally shot in the Islampura police precinct on Sunday and subsequently passed away despite efforts to save him. The police have initiated a case against unidentified assailants based on a complaint filed by Tamba's brother, Junaid Sarfraz.

In addition to discussing the murder case, Naqvi addressed the issue of overbilling by power distribution companies, particularly highlighting the adverse effects on both affluent and impoverished households. He pledged the government's continued efforts to combat power theft, especially in regions like Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and Balochistan.

Naqvi also responded to rumors circulating about potential social media shutdowns, stating that the government's focus is on introducing legislation to address fake news and baseless allegations instead. Furthermore, he commented on the recent targeted killings in Balochistan, emphasizing the importance of ongoing investigations into the matter to ensure justice for the victims.

The Interior Minister's statements have sparked discussions regarding the complexities of security and diplomatic relations between Pakistan and India, as well as the challenges posed by issues such as power theft and targeted violence within the country.
