Home Department of Punjab stated that at least 860 workers of the banned radical outfit Tehreek-e-Labbaik Pakistan (TLP) were released from the custody of police on Tuesday (today).
Punjab Home Department mentioned that the workers were set free after the second meeting of the steering committee that was arranged after the negotiation was completed between the administration and outlawed outfit.
The department also cleared all those workers who do not face any case were released from the custody but not those who have cases registered against them.
Sources told that workers of a banned outfit were to be released who were taken into custody but were not involved in any sort of violence or broke any law of the society.
Earlier on Sunday, an agreement was reached between the government and the banned outfit. Religious scholar Mufti Muneeb-ur-Rehman in a presser mentioned that committee was to be formed which will be headed by Ali Mohammad Khan as the representative of the government while Mufti Ghulam Ghous Baghdadi represented TLP.
It should be mentioned that there were certain points and demands of TLP that were agreed upon by the government after which protests and march towards the capital was called off by the proscribed organization.
