Confirming his arrest, Shahbaz Gill said he was surrounded by the police and practically he is under arrest. Earlier, in a tweet Shahbaz Gill said “A heavy contingent of police arrived in PP-272.
Shahbaz Gill is trapped in a factory. I am not afraid of arrest. Imran Khan’s soldier is not afraid of such tactics. We did not come to do terrorism, I am ready to be arrested.”
Earlier, a large contingent of police Sunday arrived to arrest the leader of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Shahbaz Gill for moving around in the area with the Frontier Constabulary (FC) personnel from Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP).
The police said that they came to bring the FC personnel back, for the armed personnel were not allowed to move around in the area. The police contingent was on the premises of a private cotton ginning factory for the arrest of Shahbaz Gill.
