She said that the police officials left after they learnt that Walid Iqbal was not present at home.
Last night, police raided the residence of various PTI leaders including Hammad Azhar, Jamshed Cheema, Usman Dar, Fawad Chaudhry and others in Punjab and Islamabad in a bid to scuttle the long march.
