Yasmeen Zaidi, the wife of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Sindh President, Ali Zaidi, has filed a petition in the Sindh High Court (SHC) against his arrest.
Yasmeen stated in the petition that Ali Zaidi was illegally taken into police custody. “The constitution provides every citizen the right to hold a peaceful protest and the police should be ordered to release him immediately,” said the petition.
Later, talking to the media, Yasmeen said, “Ali Zaidi was detained a day after the death of my father. My husband was not allowed to attend his father-in-law’s funeral.”She said that the authorities should protect the rights of citizens but they deprive of their basic rights.
