Newly-elected PTI/SIC MNA Sher Afzal Marwat again said on Monday that if anything bad happened to him, PML-N would be responsible for that, reported 24NewsHD TV channel.

Talking to the media outside the Federal Investigation Agency’s (FIA) office in Islamabad, he, however, said he could not be cowed by threats to his life.

He further said 15 years ago a man fled to Dubai from Pakistan. “As far my information is concerned, some people from India contacted him when the Punjab Chief Minister asked them to do so to plan my murder,” he said, adding, “I have audio messages which are both in Urdu and Pashto.”

He said there was a need to investigate these audio messages. 

Marwat said that politics in Pakistan had become dirty after May 9. “Anybody can be kidnapped or murdered,” he said, and added, “Those in the PML-N are so powerful that they don’t want to see anybody raising voice against them.”

PTI stalwart said that the party’s mandate was stolen. “Regime change by the US has plunged the country into complete chaos.”

He went on to say that the nation by voting for the PTI-backed independent candidates in the February 8 elections had rejected the narrative built around May 9 incidents of violence.

Earlier, a three-member inquiry committee of the FIA’s Cyber Crime Wing, headed by an additional director, put questions to Marwat in connection with his allegations against the Punjab CM which he had made on social media site X on March 9.  

The FIA team also asked Marwat to give his cellphone to them so that they could investigate his claims by listening to audio messages.

In one of his tweets, Marwat claimed to be the target of a plot orchestrated by the Punjab Chief Minister, stating, "It is imperative to publicly acknowledge that 'Maryam Nawaz Sharif' poses a threat to my life, as she has orchestrated an 'assassination attempt against me,' which can take place at any time.

"He further alleged, "An amount of $100,000 has been allocated by Maryam Nawaz Sharif to these assassins for the 'execution of my murder."
