President Arif Alvi has visited the Police Lines Guesthouse to meet Imran Khan, 24NewsHD TV channel reported Thursday.
The two leaders set to deliberate upon the ongoing situation. Earlier in the day, he condemned violence in the name of protest, saying the protest is a constitutional right of every citizen, but it needed to be made within the bounds of the law.
“The way some miscreants have damaged public property, particularly government and military buildings, is condemnable,” he tweeted.
The president said the loss of human lives as an aftermath was “heart-wrenching, regrettable, unfortunate and highly condemnable”.
Alvi said he was “alarmed, shocked and deeply” disturbed over the current situation in the country arising out of the arrest and manhandling of the former prime minister Imran Khan.
“We must have a re-think and look for political solutions, rather than coercion and arrests,” he said.
