Over the last few days, all the opposition parties in Pakistan have rallied against the Government of Imran Khan. They also staged a largely attended agitation against the Government. A large number of people had gathered at the protest meeting held in Karachi. It demanded the resignation of Imran Khan.
Following the meeting, Safdar Awan, the husband of Pakistan Muslim League (Nawaz) leader and Nawaz Sharif’s daughter Maryam Nawaz was arrested from a hotel room. Sindh Inspector General of Police Mushtaq Mahar was insulted at the time of Awan’s arrest.
Mushtaq Mahar was abducted by Pakistani security forces and pressured to register an offence against Safdar Awan, alleged the PML-N party’s Spokesman. Irritated by the insult of the senior officer, all the Police officers of Sindh province have applied for mass casual leave. As the name of the Pakistan Army has been tarnished in the whole affair, Army Chief Bajwa has ordered an inquiry into the matter.
