ISLAMABAD: The Federal Investigation Agency’s counter-terrorism wing on Thursday served a notice to journalist Taha Siddiqui threatening him with legal proceedings.
The notice comes two days after the Islamabad High Court (IHC) stopped the FIA from harassing the journalist over his posts on social media.
The notice, served to Taha Siddiqui late Thursday, demanded him to appear before Inspector Shahid Majeed at FIA counter-terrorism wing’s office in Islamabad on May 26 [today] “to answer such questions as put forth to you”.
