PTI leader Fawad Chaudhry was apprehended from his residence, shortly after he publicly censured the government for scheming to arrest party chairman, Imran Khan, said party leader Farrukh Habib Wednesday morning.
The development comes as a surprise for many. The Islamabad police have confirmed the arrest.
Fawad’s arrest comes amid the nightlong turnout of PTI workers who rushed to party chairman Imran Khan’s residence to ensure his security.
“The imported government has gone berserk,” Habib said in a tweet. The PTI leader also posted videos on social media of police whisking away Fawad.
