Over 100 PML-N leaders detained, says Memoona
MULTAN The crackdown on Muslim League-Nawaz workers continued on Friday, with over a hundred activists and leaders so far arrested in Multan, Okara, Lahore, Sahiwal and Hyderabad, Memoona Hashmi of the PML-N said.
“More than a hundred of our leaders have so far been arrested,” Ms Hashmi said. “The police and the Elite Force are conducting raids on their residences at midnight Printers, and publishers have been asked not to print publicity material of the PML-N while transporters are being threatened with dire consequences if they supply vehicles to Leaguers to proceed to Lahore. I have packed my bag and am ready to go to jail anytime.”
She said the government planned to detain more than a thousand leaders of the PML-N and their detention orders had already been issued. She said the arrests of senior leaders were meant to scare off second-tier leaders. Ms Hashmi said PML-N leaders had not gone underground. staff report
