ISLAMABAD – Awami Raj Party Chairman and former lawmaker Jamshed Dasti was arrested during a search operation in the New Town area of Rawalpindi.

Reports in local media said New Town Police held the former parliamentarian from a hotel as a case was registered against a politician in Mahmood Kot police station of Muzaffargarh district under Sections related to criminal breach of trust.

Cops told media that they were conducting a search operation in the area when Jamshed Dasti was taken into custody. Meanwhile, Rawalpindi police have informed the Muzaffargarh Police about the arrest of the rebellious attitude leader.
