The startling details of last night's negotiations have now surfaced about how abducted policemen were released from the banned outfit Tehreek-e-Labbaik (TLP) custody and who played the key role in negotiations.
A government delegation led by Punjab Governor Chaudhary Muhammad Sarwar met a delegation of the TLP near Babu Sabu and the government released three TLP leaders in an exchange for SHO and policemen who were abducted by the protesters.
The government’s delegation included Punjab Governor along with DG Rangers Punjab and IG Punjab, reported 24NewsHD TV channel.
“More than two leaders of the banned movement were released in exchange for the release of policemen,” the TV channel reported.
The delegation of Tehreek-e-Labbaik (TLP) has demanded of the government delegation of deportation of the French ambassador, presentation of a resolution in parliament, release of TLP supremo Saad Rizvi, removal of cases and release of workers and unbanning of TLP.
The government delegation demanded assurance of no long march towards Islamabad, and refrain from the use of any kind of arson and an end to protests.
“Police officers were released after assurances from both sides,” the TV channel reported.
Governor Punjab played a central role in the talks and now the government delegation will contact TLP after further consultations.
The religiopolitical parties, lawyers, and traders are observing a nationwide complete strike on Monday (today) after the Yatim Khana incident where authorities clashed with supporters of TLP.
