Police, FC surround residences of Imran Khan, Sheikh Rasheed

ISLAMABAD: Police and Frontier Constabulary (FC) surrounded the residences of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chairman Imran Khan in Islamabad and Awami Muslim League (AML) chief Sheikh Rasheed in Rawalpindi in the wee hours of Friday.

According to details, the security forces put road blocks outside Bani Gala, the residence of the PTI chief. All exit and entry points of Bani Gala were also blocked. However all roads leading to the residence have now been opened.

As many as six buses of the police and FC arrived at the party leader’s residence early Friday, according to police sources.

The forces were deployed to restrict Imran Khan from leading a rally in Rawalpindi tomorrow due to the imposition of section 144.

The security forces also surrounded the residence of Sheikh Rasheed in Rawalpindi who is staying at his friend’s house in Islamabad.

On Thursday Islamabad police stormed PTI’s youth convention in Islamabad and arrested scores of party activists on the charge of violating section 144.

At least 120 members of the Insaf Students Federation (ISF) were arrested Thursday evening in a crackdown by law enforcement personnel against PTI in Islamabad ahead of a major anti-government protest on November 2.

Scuffles broke out between law enforcers and PTI leaders present at the venue of the youth convention, from where the ISF workers were arrested.

Video footage showed police and FC personnel baton-charging and arresting PTI workers at the venue of the convention. A scuffle broke out between the law enforcers and senior PTI leader Shah Mehmood Qureshi, who argued with the personnel demanding an explanation for the arrests.

Two workers of AML were also arrested by the police in a crackdown outside Lal Haveli, AML chief Sheikh Rasheed’s residence.
