Lal Haveli of Sheikh Rashid’s ancestors is “totally sealed.”
RAWALPINDI: The Lal Haveli, the ancestral home of Sheikh Rashid Ahmad, the leader of the Awami Muslim League (AML) and a former interior minister, was sealed early on Monday.
Rashid said in a tweet that “bloodthirsty, who first shed blood of the government and now of Lal Haveli” had “totally shut the residence in the dark of the night.”
“When approached for assistance, the Rangers and FC [Frontier Corps] declined. The Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) and the police then assisted in sealing the Lal Haveli “He asserted.
