PESHAWAR: The caretaker Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Chief Minister  Justice (retd) Dost Muhammad Khan took notice of Peshawar Deputy Commissioner (DC) Imran Hamid Sheikh statement.

The deputy commissioner in his statement said that all arrangements were finalized and even, in case of any emergency on July 25, the administration had prepared 1,000 coffins.

A notification issued by the CM House Secretariat said that government officials had been barred from giving policy statements.

The notification reads, “The DC’s video statement is a distasteful joke to spread fear and panic in voters.”

The DC had given the statement in a video message that has since gone viral on social media.
