Punjab Caretaker Information Minister Amir Mir has said that eight “terrorists”, who were allegedly hiding at Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf Chairman Imran Khan’s residence, had been arrested as they were escaping from Lahore’s Zaman Park area.
The detained terrorists were already identified and are allegedly involved in the attack on the Lahore Corps Commander House on May 9, he added.
Speaking to the media, Senior Superintendent of Police Civil Lines Hasan Javed earlier said that authorities had confirmed reports regarding the presence of 30 to 40 people inside the Khan’s Zaman Park residence.
He confirmed that eight suspects were taken into custody, who were trying to escape via the nearby canal.
