NA Standing Committee Calls Imran Khan, Sheikh Rashid Parliament Lodges Raid Case Today

ISLAMABAD: The National Assembly’s Standing Committee on Rules of Procedure and Privileges summoned PTI chairperson Imran Khan and former interior minister Sheikh Rashid today for the raid that took place in the Parliament Lodges during their tenure.

JUI-F MNA Salahuddin Ayubi’s staff, during the raid, police personnel clashed after the latter made their way towards his lodge.

The raid took place a month before the incumbent coalition government had submitted the no-confidence motion against former prime minister to oust him from power.

The incident was condemned by coalition parties and JUI-F workers had also staged a sit-in and protested on the call of party chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman.

The Islamabad Police, in March, had conducted an operation inside the Parliament Lodges and arrested more than a dozen Ansar-ul-Islam workers — a uniformed volunteer force of the JUI-F.
