ISLAMABAD: Former finance minister Khawaja Asif lands in hot waters.

The federal cabinet on Saturday approved investigations against former defence minister Khawaja Asif for holding Iqama during his tenure as a minister.

Special Assistant to Prime Minister on Information Dr Firdous Ashiq Awan said the investigation will reveal how a guarantor of national security became a national security risk himself, "Asif has become a missing person," she said. "Those who have received from the NAB are creating hue and cry."

She said that the cabinet has referred the case to Interior Ministry, and the investigation will take into account the countries who have interests with the company which gave Iqama to Asif, adding that the case was 'a serious security breach'.

The special assistant said that Judge Arshad Malik's statement is 'an eye-opener',
