Although a certain delay is claimed in the department, a top official said filing action was taking place expeditiously after a new minister was appointed.
They include white van abductions, kidnappings and assault, and the investigation reports have been sent by the CID to the AG’s Dept, he said.
Accordingly, several top figures in the previous regime are to be arrested. Quoting a top CID official, media reported that top figures of the previous regime and their relatives were to be arrested over several high-profile cases.
