LAHORE – Investigators in Punjab capital have arrested a local businessman who brought Turkish star Engin Altan Düzyatan from the popular Diriliş: Ertuğrul series to Pakistan earlier this month.

Mian Kashif Zameer, the blonde-haired host who was seen everywhere from the Turkish star during his first ever visit to the South Asian country had struck a deal of one million dollars with Mr. Engin Altan but reportedly paid only half of it.

He was held by Lahore police in an early Thursday morning raid led by SSP Investigation for hurling threats at a private TV channel reporter, Hammad Aslam. His security guards were also taken into custody.

Reports in local media suggest that the accused resisted arrest. A case was registered with Lahore's Ghalib Market Police Station before his arrest.

Meanwhile, the provincial police also detained the accomplices of Rawalpindi’s Farrukh Khokhar.
