Amjad Shoaib, a retired army officer, and his YouTube channel are proved to be part of an organised propaganda campaign, the 24NewsHD TV reported on Wednesday.
The FIA has completed the forensics of Amjad Shoaib's mobile phone and as per the findings, his mobile turned out to be an important tool of PTI and Imran Khan's negative propaganda.
The detail of his close contacts and conversation show the ex-serviceman’s connections with the persons involved in the campaign targeting the state organs and key figures.
PTI leaders Asad Umar, Ali Zaidi, Usman Dar, Fawad Chaudhry, Shibli Faraz, Zartaj Gul, Farrukh Habib and Ghulam Sarwar are included in the WhatsApp circle of General Amjad Shoaib.
His ties with notorious Adil Raja and some journalists are too found. Amjad spread rumours about Israeli Prime Minister and Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif's visit to Qatar. Though the ex-serviceman admitted in writing that the story was bogus, the YouTube propaganda went on.
A couple of days ago, he was arrested on charges of inciting public servants against the state and the government. Amjad Shoaib deleted WhatsApp data before FIA summons, but forensics dug everything out. Following the leads, more revelations are expected and the mastermind behind the organized campaign is likely to be exposed.
