Police launched a ‘crackdown’ on marchers in sector G-6 of the capital and nabbed several people including DJ Butt and activists of Majlis-e-Wehdat-e-Muslimeen and Pakistan Awami Tehreek.
A member of PAT negotiating team with the government, Asad Abbas, was also arrested by law enforcers. However, police did not elaborate grounds behind the arrest.
Similarly, MWM workers who were present in a guest house near PTI sit-in were also nabbed by the police. PTI leader Shireen Mazari strongly condemned the arrest of DJ Butt, saying Butt was an apolitical person, hence he should immediately be released.
DJ Butt has been working as official sound engineer of the PTI since 2011.
