However, he told participants that removal of the name would in no way affect the ongoing inquiry into the matter and the inquiry would continue till its logical conclusion.

Khan reiterated during the meeting that the independent media must play its role not only towards safeguarding national interests and security but also counter negative propaganda by enemies of the state.

Almeida's name was added to the Exit Control List to prevent him from traveling abroad after the Dawn published a report, denied by authorities, by him about an alleged rift between the country's powerful military and its government

The Prime Minister's Office rejected the story thrice since it was published on October 6.

In an Editor's note, Dawn clarified its position and stated on the record that the story "was verified, cross-checked and fact-checked.
