FIA probe against Zardari, Talpur put on hold by SC

Kashmir not star vote-catcher for Pakistan political parties

Reham Khan, former wife of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chairman Imran Khan and a TV presenter, Thursday said that she could prove in a court what she had written in her autobiography, which was released on Amazon and in paperback in the United Kingdom and select territories.

Addressing a public meeting in Shahdadkot, Imran said that Asif Ali Zardari may contact Nawaz Sharif to save his theft and perhaps they both become brothers again.

In a statement issued by the PTI Central Media Department, the In-charge Imran Khan's Election Campaign in NA-53 Islamabad-II Zulfi Bukhari said that all preparations have been finalized for the second phase of PTI election campaign in Islamabad. He also asked the people of Sindh to stand up against corrupt leaders.

Meanwhile, the party of slain former prime minister Benazir Bhutto on Wednesday decried what it called "pre-poll rigging", saying the reopening of a criminal case against its co-chairman was politically motivated.

The FIA registered a case in Karachi a week ago over money laundering scam worth Rs35 billion.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi finds a tangential reference in the book, which is mostly a damaging portrayal of the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf leader, who believes he is on course to forming the government after the July 25 election.

Zardari, 62, is the former co-chairperson of Pakistan People's Party.

Last week Sharif, who is in London as his wife receives cancer treatment, was given a 10-year jail sentence in abstentia over corruption.

Military spokesman Major General Asif Ghafoor told a news conference that a total of 371,388 troops would be deployed inside and outside polling stations, some three times more than during the last election in 2013.

Much of the tension centres around the stand-off between former PML-N prime minister Nawaz Sharif and the military.

Bakhtyar, who says he was not coerced and was never approached by the military's Inter Services Intelligence (ISI) agency, concedes his switch from PML-N to PTI was not based on ideology. He has vowed to return to Pakistan on Friday.
