RAWALPINDI: A security official deployed with Nawaz Sharif’s motorcade, on condition of anonymity, told British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) that some people called on Federal Minister for Railways Khawaja Saad Rafique and took him with them for a while.
The incident occurred at Kachehri Chowk.
Few minutes later, Rafique returned and sat with Nawaz in his bulletproof car following which Nawaz’s motorcade touched speed of as much as 120km/hour.
Ostensibly, it seems a message has been sent to Nawaz Sharif, pronounced a policeman.
However, state minister Tariq Fazal overtly dismissed the rumors when approached and termed Nawaz’s address in Jhelum the reason behind fast speed.
On the other hand, policemen deployed for security purposes expressed exasperation over deduction in risk allowance.
