PTI activist killed in clashes with police outside Zaman Park

A worker of the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) has been killed in clashes with police in Lahore, the party claimed on Wednesday, as the government imposed Section 144 to ban public gatherings ahead of the PTI rally in the provincial capital.

In a message on Twitter, PTI Chairman Imran Khan accused the provincial police of brutality and murdering party worker Ali Bilal in clashes near his residence in Zaman Park.

“Ali Bilal unarmed & our dedicated & passionate PTI worker murdered by Punjab police,” the former prime minister said in a tweet.

“Shameful, this brutality on unarmed PTI workers who were coming to attend election rally. Pakistan is in the grip of murderous criminals. We will file cases against IG, CCPO & others for murder,” he added.

The PTI leaders accused police of torturing its supporters who had come out to protest in the provincial capital. The party further claimed that its ‘peaceful’ workers were arrested in Lahore soon after reports emerged that the provincial capital had been placed under Section 144, banning public gatherings.
