Former PTI leader Fawad Chaudhry, who is now a member of the Istehkam-i-Pakistan Party, was arrested on Saturday. According to his wife’s post on X, Fawad was taken to an unknown place. His brother, Faisal Chaudhry, confirmed that Fawad was “kidnapped by a few uniformed officials accompanied by plainclothed men while he was having breakfast at his Islamabad residence.” Fawad’s arrest happened the day after PTI leader Asad Qaiser was detained in a graft case.
Fawad had left PTI after a countrywide crackdown on the party following the May 9 riots caused by the arrest of its chairman, Imran Khan. There was an attempt to detain Fawad a week prior, but he sought relief from the Islamabad High Court. He later joined the IPP, a party formed by PTI deserters. In July, Fawad was granted interim pre-arrest bail in two terror cases relating to the May 9 riots. However, the Election Commission of Pakistan issued non-bailable arrest warrants for him and Imran in a case related to contempt of the electoral body. Fawad later furnished bail bonds in each case.[Image description: The news article discusses the arrest of former PTI leader Fawad Chaudhry, along with details of his previous legal battles and affiliations.]
