Karachi, Jan 12 (ANI): Pakistan’s Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan has ordered an inquiry into the ‘search operation’ carried out by rangers at New York Times Pakistan correspondent Salman Masood’s residence in Islamabad.

According to the Dawn, Nisar has sought an explanation into the matter from police and security agencies.

He said that such search operations are unacceptable at all costs.

Earlier, the New York Times correspondent had posted pictures on Twitter, showing several Rangers personnel at his home.

According to Masood, the officials said they wanted to search the premises but had no warrants.

In 2013, on the eve of the general election, New York Time’s bureau chief in Pakistan, Declan Walsh, was expelled from the country by the government for indulging in “undesirable activities.” (ANI)
