ISLAMABAD – Former federal minister Fawad Chaudhry was detained by the authorities soon as he came out of the Supreme Court late on Wednesday night.

The Senior Vice-President of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) had been inside the top court since 11am (for more than 12 hours) in a bid to evade arrest amid the ongoing crackdown on party leaders and workers.

He was taken into custody after he came out of the apex court premises.

Speaking to the media just before the arrest, he claimed that the detention of a SC lawyer on SC property was a first for Pakistan.

He claimed that issues were currently being faced by all social groups.

Political discussion might resolve issues. The heat caused by Mr. Khan's arrest needs to be reduced, he continued.

He claimed that a deliberate effort had been undertaken to create division between the army and the PTI.

Like other party leaders including Asad Umar, the Islamabad police have held Fawad Chaudhry under Section 3 of the Maintenance of Public Ordinance (MPO) and shifted him to the Secretariat Police Station.
