Ishaq Dar was reported to have applied for political asylum in the United Kingdom. However, his family denied this fact. They stated he has not applied for asylum and he is living there legally.
His son further came up and said he has not asked for political asylum, it was just that since his passport and Pakistani nationality has revoked so he had to make arrangements and clarify his status in United Kingdom.
