PML-N MNA Javed Latif has been booked for violating coronavirus SOPs in Sheikhupura, it emerged Saturday.
A large number of PML-N activists gathered at the Sheikhupura interchange to greet Latif following his release from jail Friday. He reached his home with the cavalcade.
A government official, Shafaqat, filed the complaint against the PML-N lawmaker in the Sadar police station.
The FIR named eight individuals, including two of Latif’s brothers and his son, among 220 unidentified people.
Latif was arrested in a sedition case in April.
He had said that they would not chant Pakistan Khappay (we want Pakistan) if anything happened to his party’s vice-president, Maryam Nawaz. ‘It is the matter of a leader’s life,’ the PML-N lawmaker told.
‘I am saying it beforehand when Benazir Bhutto realized the threats to her life, she took names and after that the tragedy took place.’—INP
