On Thursday, the Anti-Corruption Establishment (ACE) team, assisted by the police, arrested Chaudhry Parvez Elahi, the President of PTI, outside his residence, Zahoor Elahi Palace, on corruption charges. Amir Mir, the Punjab Interim Information Minister, confirmed this information. The arrest followed several unsuccessful attempts to apprehend him.
According to Mr Mir, the former Chief Minister of Punjab has been apprehended for accepting illicit payments for development initiatives. He further stated that the individual in question would soon be transferred to the anti-corruption headquarters. “The vicinity surrounding his residence has been barricaded for the past few days,” he included.
According to the individual, he initially opposed the police’s actions. However, when law enforcement attempted to forcibly enter his vehicle by breaking the driver’s side window, he complied and exited the car. He suggested that discussions regarding human rights violations should be moderated due to the allegations of corruption against him.
According to the speaker, the individual in question will receive the same treatment as the accused individuals in jail.
According to reports, the individual in question faces legal action from the police in four separate cases. These cases involve allegations of corruption related to development projects and an incident in which the individual allegedly resisted arrest at their residence in Lahore.
According to reports, Mr Elahi was placed under police surveillance for multiple days before his apprehension outside his residence in Gulberg. According to reports, the police received information regarding the individual’s location and subsequently took decisive action to detain him.
There were concerns regarding the individual’s detainment due to his planned meeting with political figures on the current day. As per the reports, it has been indicated.
According to reports, the police monitored his whereabouts for the past few days. According to the reports, where he will be relocated is currently unknown.
According to reports, police personnel have been deployed at Lahore’s anti-corruption directorate. The individual in question may be transported to Gujranwala for further proceedings.
Previously, law enforcement officials were unsuccessful in apprehending Mr. Elahi. However, they maintained a perimeter around the residence of the PTI representative located on Zahoor Elahi Road until the latest updates were received on Friday morning.
Following the cancellation of Parvez Elahi’s bail by an anti-corruption court, a substantial police force arrived at his residence. The PTI president has been accused of interfering in state affairs, misusing power, and irregularities in the development funds. A case has been filed against him at the Ghalib Market police station.
According to sources, a team comprising DIG Operations Sadiq Ali Dogar, Model Town SP Operations Ammara Sherazi, and SSP Operations Sohaib Ashraf, accompanied by a substantial police force, arrived at the residence of Parvez Elahi.
The legal representatives of Parvez Elahi notified the police that their client was not on the premises. They also expressed their willingness to assist the police in searching for the house, provided that the police present a valid arrest warrant.
According to the statement made by Mr Elahi’s legal representative in court, the former chief minister was experiencing chest discomfort and could not attend the court proceedings. According to the prosecution, the medical certificate presented by Parvez Elahi’s counsel during the court proceedings was fraudulent.
The court dismissed Parvez Elahi’s interim bail plea due to non-compliance. Furthermore, the court denied the PTI leader’s plea for exemption from attendance.
