The caretaker government of two months should refrain from these highhanded tactics. We will go to court on these illegal actions of the caretaker government. We have full faith in an independent judiciary.”
Former federal minister Moonis Elahi tweeted: “Last night the police raided our house in Gujrat. No warrant, no case. 25 police vehicles are understandable, but what were 2 black Vigos doing with them? Indian spies were looking for?”
