New DG FIA Mohsin Butt

During his 98 days tenure, FIA was accused for placing journalists under surveillance and harassing dissenting voices. According to sources, Tahir Rai was under pressure to make a strong Toshakhana case but he could not make a “strong Toshakhana case” against Imran Khan and purportedly this is the core reason behind his departure.
