PTM leader Mohsin Dawar arrested by Police along with 15 workers in Islamabad
ISLAMABAD - Pashtun Tahaffuz Movement (PTM) leader Mohsin Dawar arrested by Police along with 15 workers in Islamabad.
MNA Mohsin Dawar was taken into custody on Tuesday in Islamabad, said Kohsar police Station House Officer (SHO) Akhtar Ali.
SHO Ali said that 15 workers of PTM, including Dawar, had been taken to Kohsar police station from outside the National Press Club in Islamabad, where they were demonstrating against the group's chief Manzoor Pashteen's arrest.
The total number of arrested demonstrators, however, can be higher as more protesters were taken to other police stations.
A journalist, Khan Zeb, was also among those arrested and was earlier misidentified by the police as PTM leader and MNA Ali Wazir, who was part of the protest.
SHO Ali later confirmed that Wazir had not been taken into custody and it was in fact the journalist, Khan Zeb, whom the police had believed to be Wazir. The journalist, the SHO told *DawnNewsTV*, would be released soon.
The development was also confirmed by Dawar.
