According to the televised details, Asif denied any possibility that arm forces would have anyone of those 60 persons whose names were provided by the outlawed Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP).

TTP handed over a list of 60 such people – women and children – to the head of their negotiators Maulana Samiul Haq which they belive are in the custody of arm forces.

However, Asif maintained that if Taliban provide concrete evidence about women and children being held by the forces then federal authorities would definitely be investigating into this matter.
