ISLAMABAD, Pakistan – Former PTI leader Faisal Vawda said on Monday that certain members of Imran Khan’s party were engaged in the assassination of deceased journalist Arshad Sharif.

According to Vawda, people who would gain from the death of the investigative journalist planned it in Pakistan.

When asked about one of the people who hosted Sharif in Kenya, Vawda revealed Waqar Ahmed was his college classmate and had a property firm in Karachi.

Sharif, 49, was shot dead by Kenyan police on Sunday night while returning from Magadi Town, in what they called a case of “mistaken identification.”

In a statement, the East African country’s police stated they were looking for a stolen vehicle with a kidnapped child inside on October 23 when Sharif’s automobile failed to halt at a checkpoint. Officers opened fire, and one round struck the journalist in the head, killing him instantly.

Vawda said last week that killed journalist Arshad Sharif was shot at close range within the car, and that his murder was pre-planned.

In an explosive news conference, the former minister said that Sharif was pressured into leaving Pakistan because he did not want to go.

The investigative journalist, a critic of the country’s establishment, left Pakistan in August after a sedition charge was filed against him.

Vawda said that the investigative journalist was dispatched to Kenya as part of a plot developed in Pakistan.

He further denied that Sharif was compelled to leave the United Arab Emirates (UAE), saying, “I was in communication with Arshad Sharif till the end, and he wanted to return to Pakistan.” He stated that he was prepared for the forensic examination of his mobile phone record.
