Pakistan's Ministry of Interior on Wednesday removed a representative of the Inter-Service Intelligence (ISI) from the list of officials who will be taking part in a team that will ascertain facts in the killing of journalist Arshad Sharif from the Kenyan Police and relevant authorities, media reports said.

In a revised notification, a copy of which is available with The Express Tribune, the ministry removed ISI Lt Col Saad Ahmed’s name hours after it had issued an earlier notification stating the names of three officials part of the high-profile team.

The two-member team includes Director/DIG Police, FIA Athar Waheed and Deputy Director General Intelligence Bureau Omar Shahid Hamid.

According to the notification, the team will leave for Kenya immediately and noted that the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Pakistan’s High Commission in Nairobi will facilitate the team during the visit, the newspaper reported.

It furthered that the team will submit the report to the Interior Division.

Sharif was reportedly shot dead in Kenya allegedly by the local police on Sunday night.

Kenya's police said a probe into the incident is currently going on.
