According to Geo News, the spokesperson further alleged that Khan called Memon to his office and asked him why was no case filed against the Sharif family adding that the official was asked to file a terrorism case against Nawaz Sharif, Maryam Nawaz and Capt Safdar.
Aurangzeb said that the DG FIA refused to pursue such cases "after which the NAB-Niazi nexus was formed".
The stalwart later said that Memon in an interview "revealed many things" and that his claims have "proved the Opposition right".

She further demanded that the Prime Minister should step down and a case of Article 62 and 63 be registered against him. The spokesperson also demanded that "security be provided to the former FIA director-general and that Hamza Shahbaz be released".

With regard to the rise in cases of treason against the opposition she said, "Charges of treason are being put, cases are being filed and then these are being defended."
