He said it should also be probed under which circumstances Arshad Sharif had left the country, who forced him to go abroad and where he stayed.

He said it is very unfortunate that some elements start hurling allegations on the state institutions on the basis of tragic incidents like the death of Arshad Sharif.

Responding to a question, Babar Iftikhar said all were sad due to untimely death of Arshad Sharif.
