Riaz, who is on bail till July 19 in a sedition case, revealed that he was traveling to Dubai for a medical test.

According to my doctors, during my arrest, I was given something to eat that could be dangerous. I had to take some tests. So to prove this, I wanted to get my tests done,” he said in a tweet.

“I was stopped at the airport,” he added.

According to the immigration sources, the anchorperson was offloaded as his name has been added to the black list.

His lawyer Mia Ali Ashfaq talking to the media said that his client was barred by the authorities at the airport as his name was on the no-fly list.

“You will be responsible if his [Imran Riaz Khan] health condition deteriorates,” he said apparently addressing the government.

Reports claim that the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) place Imran Riaz Khan’s name on its watch list at a request made by the Punjab Police.
