On Friday, the family of Azam Khan, former principal secretary to ex-Prime Minister Imran Khan, claimed that he was missing in Islamabad.
According to police sources, Azam Khan left his house on Thursday evening and did not return. His cellphone was also switched off, as stated in the application filed by his nephew at the Kohsar police station.
The police officials are currently investigating the matter and will decide whether to file a case.
However, the Islamabad Capital Territory Police (ICT) has requested the family of the former PM’s ex-principal secretary to approach the relevant police station to initiate legal action.
The police have assured the family that they will exert all possible efforts to locate and recover the missing government officer.
Khan, who was a member of the government led by the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI), was removed from his position in 2022. He held the rank of a grade 21 officer during the previous government’s tenure.
In 2017, he served as the chief secretary in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa. His name gained prominence when an alleged audio tape, purportedly recorded at the Prime Minister’s House, was leaked in September 2022.
