PTI leaders Yasmin Rashid and Omar Sarfaraz Cheema have been arrested on a new charge of attacking the Prime Minister’s House in Lahore. Shehbaz Sharif, who was premier at that time, is also involved. They appeared before an anti-terrorism court in Lahore and were sent to jail on a 14-day judicial remand. PTI Chairman Imran Khan’s arrest on May 9 resulted in widespread violence and attacks on military installations. Scores of PTI workers were arrested and the Punjab police made several more arrests earlier this month. The police submitted a statement in court detailing the fresh charges against Yasmin and Cheema, who are accused of terrorism and multiple criminal charges. The police requested a 30-day physical remand, but the court declined. The PTI leaders are now on a 14-day judicial remand and have to appear in court on Dec 4. Yasmin also expressed her desire to contest elections against PML-N supremo Nawaz Sharif and his brother, former prime minister Shehbaz Sharif. She expressed frustration at the delay in completing the charges against her.
