He also said that despite cases not being filed, several military personnel had been arrested and were being kept in remand for a long period of time.

He told the media heads that he had called upon the officers of the CID and other investigating officers and had instructed them to expedite the process without detaining military personnel for a long period of time without filing action.

The President also noted that National Security had not been weakened.

Speaking further, the President also said that a decision will be taken in the near future on whether to continue with the fuel pricing formula owing to the confusions that have arisen over fuel price revisions.
