VEHARI: Punjab Police said that Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) South Punjab leader Khalid Nisar Dogar has been arrested after a heavy contingent of police surrounded his house in a case related to the May 10 riots.
Khalid Nisar Dogar is also a PTI ticket holder from the PP-231 constituency. Dogar was hiding abroad for several months.
Earlier, Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) supporter Khadija Shah had been ordered to be held in custody for a period of 30 days under Maintenance of Public Order (MPO) 3 by the Lahore Deputy Commissioner.
The decision, made on November 15, comes after an anti-terrorism court granted Khadija Shah post-arrest bail on Wednesday in the fourth case related to the May 9 riots.
The detention order was issued based on the recommendations of SP Cantt and the District Intelligence Branch.
The notification asserted that Khadija Shah actively participated in violent activities on May 9, and upon reviewing the evidence, there is concern that she may pose a threat to law and order once again. The detention is aimed at preventing any potential disturbance to the law and order situation. – INP
