“My father was sitting in a coffee shop with friends when an FIA team comprising 30 to 40 officers came and took him into custody, probably in an old case,” Chaudhry Ghulam Hussain’s son was reported as saying by the private TV channel.

According to Express News, the FIA while confirming Hussain's arrest said that the FIA’s Commercial Banking Circle had arrested the senior journalist.

According to a press release issued by the agency, Hussain was declared “wanted” in case number 94/2011 by the FIA’s Commercial Banking Circle.

An FIA spokesperson said that Ghulam had taken a loan worth over Rs50 million from a bank on fake documents in 2003, adding that two of his sons were also involved in the case.

He further said that a banking court in Lahore had issued non-bailable arrest warrants for the anchor in the case.
