LHC summons IGPs of Punjab, Islamabad at 6pm in Fawad Chaudhry arrest case

Lahore High Court (LHC) on Wednesday summoned the Inspector Generals of Police (IGPs) of Islamabad and Punjab at 6pm in the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) leader Fawad Chaudhry arrest case.

Further, PTI filed a petition against Fawad’s apprehension in the LHC. The court ordered to produce the former minister at 1:30pm and then at 2pm.

However, the authorities did not implement the order and the court extended the ultimatum till 3pm.

The PTI leader was still not produced as the hearing resumed at 3pm. During the hearing, Justice Tariq Saleem Sheikh inquired the authorities where the PTI leader was.

To this, Punjab additional advocate general told the bench that he was not in the custody of Punjab Police but Islamabad Police.

Islamabad Police have reached the federal capital with Fawad where he will be presented in the F-8 Kutchery while heavy contingents of the police have been summoned to the court.

Meanwhile, soon when the government maintained that it was unaware of Fawad’s whereabouts, a video emerged from Lahore Toll Plaza showing PTI leader Farrukh Habib and party activists trying to stop the vehicle that was moving Fawad Chaudhry to the federal capital.
