The Auqaf department has demolished walls of veteran politician Javed Hashmi’s house along a marriage hall in Multan.
In a tweet, Javed Hashmi said that police had besieged his houses and started tearing them down. They did not tell any reason for that, he claimed. He also said that he was going to surrender himself before police.
24 News quoted Auqaf Department Zonal Administrator Rana Tariq Ali as saying that the wedding lawn demolished by the Auqaf department was built on the department’s land.
While, Javed said that it had been more than three hours since they were besieged and no notice was issued to him regarding encroachment of the land.
He also said that house and school of his daughter Maimoona Hashmi, a former MPA, were also razed.
