After months long investigation the Scotland Yard has cleared Pakistani businessman Tarab Raja of any wrongdoing and allegations leveled against him have all been found to be without any proof.
Raja is a successful entrepreneur who came to the limelight after it was reported in the Pakistani media in December, last year that he had caused troubled amongst two groups of Pakistan Muslim League – Nawaz (PML-N).
A group had accused Raja of attacking a PML-N leader in Britain at the airport. However, now the police have confirmed that the businessman had nothing to do with the tussle and in face, he himself was attacked.
On December 4, 2016, Raja himself had been attacked by a group of men while he waited at the airport, along dozens of other PML-N supporters, who had come to the airport to welcome Chief Minister of Punjab Shehbaz Sharif.
Initially, the media falsely reported that Raja was arrested by Scotland Yard, but that was never the case. The police investigated the incident and also viewed CCTV footages, after which it was determined that he had nothing to do with the fight. Those who were involved, were issued a caution but no one was arrested since there was no solid evidence.
Raja explained that some people ran a campaign against him in media to harass him and sabotage his image. “I am glad that the police has clearly established that all allegations against myself were unfounded and had no foundation in truth,” he said.
“All along, [I urged that I was] being victimised and I have nothing to do, in any shape or form, with the allegations that were made against me. Its great that the truth has prevailed now.”
