IHC orders govt to stop harassing PTI workers

Islamabad High Court (IHC) has ordered government to stop harassing workers of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI).

IHC conducted hearing on plea of PTI against closure of roads and possible arrests of its leaders and workers in the
federal capital.

The court directed officials to not harass anyone unnecessarily and issued notices to IGP, Chief Commissioner and Deputy
Commissioner Islamabad.

During the hearing, Chief Justice Athar Minallah remarked that unbridled protests cannot be allowed in the federal capital
and how will miscreant elements be dealt with if they reach Islamabad under guise of a protest.

It merits mention that the PTI has filed a petition in the Islamabad High Court under Article 199 of the Constitution and
prayed the court to stop the ICT administration from sealing the roads and arresting people.

The commissioner, deputy commissioner and Islamabad inspector general have been made party in the plea.
