ISLAMABAD – Female workers of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) were mishandled by Islamabad police in an attempt to detain them for taking part in the party’s Youth Convention.

Reham Khan, former wife of PTI chief Imran Khan, on Thursday accused Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) of launching a campaign to ‘disgrace mothers and sisters’ of opponents ignoring all norms of decency.

Police in Islamabad have started cracking down on Pakistan Tehrik e Insaf (PTI) and have arrested at least 120 members of the Insaf Students Federation (ISF).

 Brawls broke out on Thursday evening between Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) senior leader Shah Mehmood Qureshi and law enforcement personnel as they tried to arrest PTI workers organizing a youth convention in Islamabad.

PPP also strongly condemned the use of state powers against peaceful workers. PPP Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari was holding a meeting with party leaders during which news had appeared on media regarding use of force against peaceful workers on which PPP Chairman directed the party leaders to give party version on that sad incident.

Kaira said the party had time and again warned the government to abstain from using forces against peaceful protestors or else the situation would slip out of hands and the scenes in Islamabad on Thursday night were enough to ascertain that the government had itself barricaded the capital of the country.
