Arrests of PTI workers challenged in LHC


Lahore High Court (LHC) has been moved against the arrests of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) workers.

The petitioner Shahzad Zaka has pleaded the court that the Punjab police is arresting and detaining PTI workers illegally and unconstitutionally at the behest of Punjab government, therefore, court should restrain the government from arresting these workers.

He contended that earlier the court had restrained the government from making illegal arrests but the Punjab police is not complying with the orders of court.

Punjab inspector general and Law Minister Rana Mashhood have been made respondents in the petition.
