Govt restricts PTI’s Sialkot jalsa, Usman Dar arrested

SIALKOT: Police have arrested Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) leader Usman Dar and other party workers over preparation for a public rally in the city.

According to the details, the police raided the jalsagah with heavy machinery over preparation for a public rally in the city. A scuffle broke out between PTI workers and police at the venue.

Police entered the venue of the PTI public meeting claiming that the district administration had not allowed the party to hold a public meeting at CTI Ground in Sialkot.

Upon resistance by PTI workers, police resorted to tear gas shelling and baton-charge in an effort to disperse PTI workers.

Meanwhile, Usman Dar has said that he stands with PTI Chairman and that his love for Imran Khan will not be affected even if he is sent to jail. He reiterated that the former premier will attend the rally no matter what.

On the other hand, Sialkot DPO said the local Christian community had objected to holding a rally at the ground, saying that it was their property.

He added that the “political party’s leaders” sought permission to hold the rally but the community had refused.
