“Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) leaders, including MNA Sardar Latif Khosa and Salman Akram Raja, along with several others, have been apprehended by Punjab Police in Lahore amid ongoing protests by PTI workers. The arrests occurred during widespread demonstrations organized across the country, responding to PTI founder Imran Khan’s call for protest against alleged election rigging. PTI leaders and activists assembled at various locations in Lahore, including GPO Chowk, to express their discontent with the recent polls. Sardar Latif Khosa’s arrest was confirmed by his son Shahbaz Khosa, and Salman Akram Raja was detained near Ichhra.

Additionally, Member of Punjab Assembly Haroon Akbar was apprehended in Ichhra, and Dr. Hasan Mahmood, son of PTI leader Mian Mahmood-ul-Rashid, was detained during a rally in Shadman. Notably, Mian Mahmood-ul-Rashid and his son-in-law Akram Usman are already in custody.

Amid these arrests, PTI leader Sher Afzal Marwat criticized the authorities in Punjab, describing the arrests as “utterly deplorable and wholly intolerable.” Furthermore, several PTI workers were arrested at a police checkpoint on Old Airport Road in Rawalpindi, while others managed to evade capture. The protests were initiated after Imran Khan, the former prime minister and ex-PTI chairman, called for a countrywide demonstration against alleged election rigging.”
