Police tried to arrest PTI leader Yasmin Rashid


A police team has tried to arrest Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Central Punjab President Dr Yasmin Rashid in Lahore from outside her clinic in Lahore.

A police team stopped Dr Yasmin Rashid’s vehicle by installing a barrier near Shadman’s underpass. Dr Rashid argued with the police officials who were insisting she goes with them.

While talking to media, the PTI Central Punjab president said that police stopped her vehicle at Shadman underpass and tried to arrest her. “A lady police and two other cops asked me to go with them without showing the arrest warrant.”

Rashid said that police officials did not tell her about the case in which they are trying to arrest her.

She added that she has already secured bail in Ali Bilal’s case.

She said that police removed barriers after a large number of people gathered at the scene. “I am now going to my clinic.”

Earlier, the PTI spokesperson said that police reached Dr Yasmin Rashid’s clinic to arrest her.

The spokesperson said that Dr Rashid was present in her vehicle which was stopped by the police.
