Roads surrounding Jati Umra, the former prime minister Nawaz Sharif’s home in Lahore, have been closed.
Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan was detained by the Islamabad Police on Thursday. As a result, PTI members all across the nation were angry, and incidences of arson and fights with the police occurred in several locations.
PTI workers pelleted stones at the interior minister Rana Sanaullah’s camp in Faisalabad, torched his poster, and yelled anti-PTI chants.
In anticipation of potential PTI demonstrations and any untoward incidents, all roads leading to former prime minister Nawaz Sharif’s Jati Umra house in Lahore have been closed as of right now.
To stop PTI protestors from travelling to Jati Umra, the police have reportedly blocked up the highways and placed containers along the routes.
Following the unexpected arrest, PTI members took to the streets in retaliation, igniting demonstrations across the country. For the first time in the country’s history, both the Corps Commander House in Lahore and the General Headquarters (GHQ) of the Pakistan Army were also damaged.
Due to the overwhelming response, the PTA halted internet access across the nation at the Ministry of Interior’s request. There is very little public access to Twitter, Instagram, YouTube, and Facebook.
The national demonstration will continue, according to Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI), until Imran Khan is released.
