ISLAMABAD: The little-known Justice Party has sent an application to Inspector General Punjab calling for the arrest of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan over his threat to lockdown the federal capital on 30th October.
The party chaired by advocate Malik Munsif Awan said that the Imran Khan plan to lay a siege of the twin cities of Islamabad and Rawalpindi has sent insecurity among people across the country.
The applicant stated that this was tantamount to terrorism and would send a negative example, and cause disrepute for Pakistan around the world, apart from the immense financial and economic loss to the nation.
Thus, it was necessary to immediately arrest him for the sake of peace and security.
The Justice Party had also sent a defamation notice to Imran Khan over his speech against Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif on 30th September in Raiwand, and demanded compensation of Rs. 1 billion.
It stated that he had violated the code of conduct by using abusive language against the Prime Minister terming him a ‘pharaoh’ in his Raiwind speech.
