Sheikh Rasheed dodges police raid in Islamabad
ISLAMABAD – Former Interior Minister and Awami Muslim League leader Sheikh Rasheed has dodged a police raid in the country’s federal capital, hours after PTI’s Shahbaz Gill was arrested.
Reports in local media said capital law enforcers failed to arrest Sheikh Rasheed from his residence in Islamabad as he gave cops the slip.
Police also raided Lal Haveli, a political centre for his AML party, however, the 71-year-old succeeded escaped at the eleventh hour.
In his video message, the seasoned politician confirmed the news, saying his residences were raided for his arrest. ‘Yazidi forces’ raided my house with four police vehicles, while a full contingent of white cloths was sent to Lal Haveli, he can be heard in latest clip.
مجھے جیلوں سے نہ ڈرایا جائے، عمران خان سے دوستی ہر قیمت پر نبھاؤں گا، اپنا سامان تیار کرکے بیٹھا ہوں لیکن بغیر وارنٹ کے گرفتاری کے لیے آئے تو اپنے دفاع کا حق رکھتا ہوں۔ شیخ رشید کا ویڈیو بیان pic.twitter.com/kxMf7QTSSt— Rizwan Ahmed Ghilzai (@RizwanGhilzai) August 9, 2022
He mentioned officials to follow the law to arrest him, saying he has the right to defend himself under the constitution.
Some reports suggest that senior PTI central leaders including Fawad Chaudhry, Asad Umar, Murad Saeed and Ali Zaidi are likely to be detained as capital police started a 'crackdown' on defiant leaders.
