F.P. Report

RAWALPINDI: Of total 47 Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) workers and leaders, including party’s six ex-MNAs and ex-MPAs, who had been taken to Adiala Jail yesterday (on the third day of the party’s ‘Jail Bharo’ movement), 41 workers were kept at the jail while the leaders were shifted to Shahpur Jail, Sargodha, on Saturday.

Sources told 24News that all leaders were shifted to Shahpur jail in a prison van late Friday night.

Those who were shifted to Shahpur were Sadaqat Abbasi, Zulfi Bukhari, Fayyazul Hassan Chohan, Latasab Satti, Ijaz Khan Jazi and others.

PTI leaders and workers in Rawalpindi surrendered to police as part of the ‘Jail Bharo’ movement, which party Chairman Imran Khan had announced in a reaction to arrests of party leaders in one case or the other.

A prison van remained parked at the city’s Committee Chowk waiting for the PTI workers to arrive. But not many showed up.
