Lahore: Lollywood diva Mahira Khan on Sunday questioned the Punjab police operation in Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan’s residence in Zaman Park, terming it “insanity”.
Taking to Twitter, the Raees actor shared a video tweeted by a journalist and said, “How the hell is this justified? This is insanity,”.
The video showed a crane damaging trees and breaking the main gate of Imran Khan’s residence. The operator first damaged the gate to pave the way for the police and then they entered the house.
The Punjab police launched the operation soon after the PTI Chief left for Islamabad to attend hearing of Thoshakhana case.
The police removed all the barriers, and took away all the containers put outside the residence of Imran Khan.
According to Punjab Inspector General of Police Dr. Usman Anwar, the police found bunkers in Zaman Park and recovered weapons from there.
The PTI, however, said that the operation was against the court orders and totally unjustified but the police claimed that they had search warrants to search the place for investigation. The police also said that they arrested the offenders who were involved in breaking the law during the March 14 operation.
The reports suggested that over 20 PTI workers were arrested by the police and shifted to lockups at different police stations.
Reacting to March 14 operation, Mahira Khan had tweeted, “]This is absolutely ridiculous! Praying for everyone’s safety and for some sanity to prevail!,”
The police operation started after Islamabad court issued an arrest warrants for Imran Khan for not turning up before it in Thoshakhana case. Islamabad police reached Zaman Park to implement the court notice but the situation turned out to be the different as the PTI workers did not allow them to reach their leader. The Islamabad police sought Lahore police’s help but despite that they could not have access to the PTI chief. Rangers’ help was also sought but the PTI workers showed huge resistance. Meanwhile, the LHC stopped the law enforcers from operation in Zaman Park and as a result, the police and the rangers returned from there.
