Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) leader, Shahbaz Gill, has been arrested from Muzaffargarh for violating Section 144. According to the Punjab Home Minister and Spokesperson, Abdullah Tarar, the politician was held for suspicion of causing a public nuisance amid the polling process.
However, Shahbaz Gill has criticized the Punjab Government for arresting him without any warrant and refused allegations of having any guards dressed as Frontier Corps personnel. He claimed that he had been engaged for three hours and was suddenly arrested without a warrant.
