Tariq Bashir Cheema, the federal minister in charge of national food security and research, has refuted any knowledge of his son Walidad Cheema’s role in the controversy at Bahawalpur University.
At a press conference, Cheema claimed that his political adversaries are utilizing this situation as a means of slandering him.
Senior PML-Q official Tariq Bashir Cheema also recommended the creation of a panel made up of high court judges to conduct a thorough investigation.
Cheema indicated that he would expel his son from his home if Walidad had any participation in the matter, but added that he and his son are eager to assist with every investigating body.
The claims made by Iqrarul Hassan
The son of Tariq Bashir Cheema, Walidad, is allegedly engaged in the controversy, according to renowned anchorperson Iqrarul Hassan. The journalist said in a recent vlog that the accused had been issuing him with “dire threats” as a result of him exposing the incident.
If anything happens to him, Tariq Bashir Cheema and his son Walidad would be held accountable, he claimed.
