On April 15, Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan has said that the inquiry report into the ‘Dawn leaks’ will be submitted to his ministry within two to three days.
The inside story published in Dawn about a high-level civil-military huddle, which both civil and military officials called ‘fabricated and concocted’, stirred a huge controversy last year. Subsequently, the government formed a committee, headed by Justice (retd) Amir Raza Khan, to inquire into what it called ‘planted news story’.
PTI’s Fayyaz-ul-Hassan Chauhan had said that ISI had provided recording to Maryam Nawaz’s call to journalist and asked to speak against Army.
Once, veteran journalist Sami Ibrahim had claimed that before the publication of Dawn’s controversial story regarding civil-military clash, Maryam Nawaz, daughter of PM Nawaz was in touch with Dawn’s correspondent Cyril Almeida who filed the story.
Sami while talking to a leading news channel claimed that Cyril Almeida, the Dawn reporter who filed the story depicting frayed civil-military relations in the aftermath of Uri attack was in contact with Maryam Nawaz through instant messaging application Viber.
