PTI’s Ali Nawaz Awan arrested from Mansehra
MANSEHRA: (Web Desk) Senior Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) leader Ali Nawaz Awan has been arrested from the Battal area of Mansehra, a private news channel has claimed.
According to the news channel, the former state minister had been in hiding since the May 9 events.
The police had declared him a fugitive and launched a search for his arrest. The police were informed about his presence in the Battal area of Mansehra, and he was arrested subsequently.
On the other hand, the PTI has also claimed that the party’s Additional Secretary General Ali Nawaz Awan was arrested last night from Battal, Mansehra, and moved to an unknown location. The PTI has demanded that he should be produced before the court immediately.
In addition, former minister Zulfi Bukhari’s post about Ali Nawaz has also confirmed that Ali Nawaz has allegedly been arrested.
A video statement of Ali Nawaz Awan has also been uploaded on Twitter in which the PTI leader can be heard saying that the entire Pakistan condemns the May 9 events. “But the PTI leaders were first arrested and sent to jail, and they were forced to hold press conferences to condemn the May 9 events and announce leaving the party,” he added.
“I am in the PTI, and I will remain in it. But if I am arrested, and after that I appear in a video or a press conference, people will understand that I am under pressure and recording my statement under coercion,” he stated.
