Karachi, Oct 4: Former Pakistan president Asif Ali Zardari is seeking 100 arms licences from government over security concerns.
The Sindh High Court (SHC) has accepted Zardari’s request for security as he feared that his life was in danger.
According to the Nation, Zardari’s lawyer, Senator Farooq Naek had submitted a petition in the SHC, making the Sindh chief secretary, Rangers and federal government respondents.
The petition maintained that former Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto, the late wife of Zardari, was killed and he feared the same for himself.
The petition stated that Zardari faced threats from the Taliban.
The SHC has allowed the Zardari to keep a bullet proof vehicle and private guards on his own expense. (ANI)
