Islamabad (Staff Report): Rao Tehseen, the principal information officer who was sacked after investigations into Dawn Leaks, filed a petition in Islamabad High Court on Tuesday seeking the copy of the inquiry report that recommended his removal.

The former official argued in his application that acquiring a copy of the report was his due right, adding that the report blamed him for the Dawn Leaks controversial story ‘Act against militants or face diplomatic isolation’ that dented his professional career as well.

Tehseen held the federation, the secretary information, the secretary interior and the secretary to Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif as the respondents in his application.

He further said that he had approached the commission but failed to receive a report. He pleaded that the court order the government to issue of a copy of the report to him.
