Islamabad: Interior Minister Ahsan Iqbal directed the Frontier Constabulary (FC) on Thursday to take over the security charge of the Parliament House after the withdrawal of Rangers on Wednesday.
Interior Minister Ahsan Iqbal had protested against the Rangers’s deployment at the Federal Judicial Complex where former prime minister Nawaz Sharif’s hearing was under way on Monday.
On October 2, Rangers personnel had also disallowed the interior minister from entering the accountability court. The minister arrived as the court conducted hearing of three NAB references filed against Nawaz Sharif.
The FC personnel have been mandated to assist police and elite force in providing security at the entry/exit of the Parliament, and its checking points.
