PTI Chairman Imran Khan has claimed that party leader Shahbaz Gill was not arrested rather he was abducted, reported 24NewsHD TV channel.

In a tweet uploaded on Tuesday, Imran Khan said “This is an abduction not an arrest. Can such shameful acts take place in any democracy? Political workers treated as enemies. And all to make us accept a foreign backed government of crooks.”

Toeing party chairman’s line, former federal minister and senior PTI leader Chaudhry Fawad Hussain also claimed that Shahbaz Gill was abducted by people who came in vehicles without number plates.

Soon after senior PTI leader Shehbaz Gill was whisked away by the authorities from Banigala, Islamabad, former prime minister and party Chairman Imran Khan on Tuesday convened the party’s emergency meeting to discuss the situation arising out of his comrade’s arrest, reported 24NewsHD TV channel.   

24News learnt from its sources that the party leadership would mull going to the court over the issue today. 

Sources further disclosed that all senior PTI leaders had been told by the party’s high command to remain in view of their possible arrests.
