Punjab CM orders immediate release of PTI's Shireen Mazari

LAHORE – Punjab Chief Minister Hamza Shahbaz has ordered the anti-corruption department to immediately release Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf leader Shireen Mazari.

Reports in local media suggest that the detained politician and activist is likely to be released as Anti-Corruption Punjab officials have received orders from CM Hamza Shahbaz.

Anti-Corruption DG also instructed concerned officials to release Mazari. It was learned that the team carrying the PTI leader to DG Khan was called back midway.

PML-N leader Hamza Shahbaz said Mazari’s arrest was not in line with the social values, saying that being a woman she is respectable.

Hamza also called for an investigation against the anti-corruption department that arrested the former human rights minister.

Punjab CM took action as the daughter of Shireen Mazari, Imaan Zainab, claimed her mother was ‘beaten and taken away by male police officers’.

Islamabad cops, however, opposed Imaan’s statement saying Shireen Mazari was arrested by female police officers as per the law at the request of the anti-corruption department. News of any mishandling is baseless.
