Cases were filed against Pakistan Muslim League-N Vice President Maryam Nawaz for holding a rally without prior permission from relevant provincial authorities.
On July 21, Maryam announced that she was holding a rally and protest in Faisalabad to gather support for her incarcerated father Nawaz Sharif. However, the administration had not given her permission to carry out the activity.
Local police stations registered cases under the loudspeaker and maintenance of public order acts. Other members of the party who are accused in the case include former Sindh governor Mouhammad Zubair, Javed Latif, Talal Chaudhry, and others.
