Imran Khan to announce ‘roadmap’ today after police raid Pervaiz Elahi’s house

LAHORE: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) head Imran Khan sharply criticized the police action against party president Pervaiz Elahi on Saturday, calling it an illegal raid on his residence with no consideration for the presence of women and family members.

“Strongly condemn the illegal raid on Pervez Elahi’s home with no regard for the women and family members present,” PTI head Imran Khan tweeted late Saturday night.

Imran Khan said on Twitter that the Constitution, Supreme Court decisions, and fundamental human rights are being violated, and that the law of the jungle is being imposed.

Khan declared today that he would give the public with a road map for defending Pakistan’s constitution and democracy.

The Anti-Corruption Establishment (ACE) team, along by a large presence of Punjab Police, searched former Punjab Chief Minister and Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) President Pervaiz Elahi’s house on Zahoor Elahi Road in Lahore on Friday night.

During the raid, police arrested at least 25 people, including servants working in the former Punjab chief minister’s household.

The eight-hour-long police operation came to an end when the Director General of Punjab’s Anti-Corruption Establishment (ACE), Sohail Zafar Chattha, and the police contingent left the area.

Pervaiz Elahi’s house in Lahore was raided by the ACE team and police contingents led by the superintendent police (SP) Model Town. At the time of the raid, a huge number of prominent lawyers were present at the PTI president’s home.

The cops entered the property by hopping over the wall, and a police armored personnel carrier (APC) broke down the main gate.

While attempting to enter the house, police officers were met with resistance from residents who pelted stones at them.
