Kaira demand release of arrested party workers
ISLAMABAD: Former federal minister and leader of Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP), Qamar Zaman Kaira has demanded to immediately release the arrested party workers in Islamabad on Wednesday.
According to police, at least five policemen were injured when PPP workers pelted stones at them in a bid to enter the NAB office, subsequently, the police retaliated by baton-charging and arresting some rowdy workers.
Dozens of PPP workers were taken into custody by the police ahead of the appearance of party chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari and former president Asif Ali Zardari before the National Accountability Bureau headquarters.
Qamar Zaman Kaira demanded of the PTI government for the immediate release of the arrested party workers and urged the local administration to avoid baton charging the party workers.
Zardari and Bilawal were asked to appear before the NAB for questioning in connection with the Park Lane Estate probe.
Last week, a banking court in Karachi had ordered the transfer of the case to Islamabad and summoned Zardari and Bilawal on March 20.
