According to the FIR, an LDA reached Johar Town for an operation against illegal constructions, but the people nominated in the FIR put up resistance by blocking the road. The accused hurled threats to the LDA workers, the FIR added. The LDA carried out an operation in Johar Town and blocked the entry gate of the Khokhar Palace by installing containers.
