Observer Report

A day after a case was registered against Nazir Chohan, a PTI MPA belonging to the estranged Jahangir Tareen group, on the complaint of Adviser to the PM on Accountability and Interior Shahzad Akbar, the former reached Lahore’s Race Course Police Station to surrender but police officials refused to take him into custody on Sunday.

According to the complaint, sent to the police on May 20, Akbar claimed that Chohan’s statements while speaking in a TV show about the former’s religious beliefs had put his life at risk.

“The offence has been committed to cause injury to the reputation, body, property and mind of the applicant and cause hatred in public at large towards the applicant,” the FIR read.

Chohan went to the In-charge Investigation of the police station and asked him for his arrest.
