KARACHI: After Pashtun Tahaffuz Movement (PTM) Chief Manzoor Pashteen, police have arrested PTM leaders and members of National Assembly Mohsin Dawar and Ali Wazir as well outside Islamabad Press Club on Tuesday.
A police official has reportedly confirmed the news saying that 15 PTM leaders including the MNAs were arrested before the IPC, while they were staging protest against arrest of Mazoor Pashteen.
DAWN News TV has quoted Dawar as saying that they had been detained by Kohsar police station force.
Earlier, Pashteen was shifted to a Dera Ismail Khan police station, where a case had been lodged against him.
Upon arrest of the PTM chief, Dawar had written, “This is our punishment for demanding our rights in a peaceful and democratic manner. Manzoor’s arrest will only strengthen our resolve. We demand the immediate release of Manzoor Pashteen.”
In a very unfortunate message being circulated on social media, Mohsin Dawar can be seen threatening and abusing the state.
