 “Shahbaz Gill has been arrested for making statements against the state institutions and creating hatred among its personnel,” police said.

Besides other charges, clauses relating to inciting people against the state institutions and their heads were added to the FIR.

Gill had been using abusive language against the journalists and hurled threats at senior bureaucrats. The PTI leader had been involved in personal attacks and making below-the-belt remarks against his political opponents.

‘This is an abduction not an arrest’

Meanwhile, PTI Chairman Imran Khan has termed Gill’s arrest as “abduction”.

Imran Khan shared the video statement of Gill’s driver who claimed that the PTI leader was tortured and dragged out of the car.

“This is an abduction not an arrest. Can such shameful acts take place in any democracy? Political workers treated as enemies. And all to make us accept a foreign-backed government of crooks.”

Sharing a video of Gill’s vehicle showing broken glasses, PTI demanded the immediate release of the party leader.
