Ali Muhammad Khan, Shehryar Afridi rearrested after release

  • PTI says Ali Muhammad has been arrested for the third time
Published May 30, 2023

The law enforcement authorities on Tuesday rearrested Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) leaders Ali Muhammad Khan and Shehryar Afridi upon their release.

A tweet on PTI’s official handle stated “Ali Muhammad Khan has been re-arrested after being released from Adiala Jail. Ali Muhammad Khan was arrested for the third time”.

Police re-arrest Shireen Mazari, Ali Muhammad Khan

He was initially arrested after protests that transformed into violence following the arrest of PTI Chairman Imran Khan on May 9. Khan was then released on May 17 and rearrested upon release.

The government also canceled his diplomatic passport.

According to the jail administration, Afridi was released on completion of his “house arrest” period under the Maintenance of Public Order (MPO) Act.

On the other hand, Afridi was initially detained under the MPO Act, spending 15 days in Central Jail Adiala. He was released earlier on Tuesday after completing his 15-day sentence, only to be immediately arrested again by Rawalpindi Police under Section 3 of the MPO Ordinance 1960, which enables the government to arrest persons “acting in any manner prejudicial to public safety”.

The fresh arrest of the PTI leader was ordered by the Rawalpindi Deputy Commissioner, who extended the detention period under the MPO law by another 15 days. Accordingly, the police rearrested Afridi as soon as he was released from Adiala Jail.

Subsequently, the PTI leader was transferred back to Central Jail Adiala in Rawalpindi under the 15-day detention orders.

There is nothing left to say any more about Pakistan. Social balkanization in progress, and future prospects dont look good. Only god can help now. Already the entire PIT overseas people are dejected about their country. Talking to fellow Pakistani's they feel shame, are refusing to send money or invest in Pakistan. PTI will become an overseas political party in name only. In the next five years, I predict it will cease to exist as a political force, and we will be back to the good old days of fighting within PDM

@TimeToMovveOn, "Social balkanization in progress, and future prospects dont look good." Anybody else keeping a running tally of how often these excitable little hindustanis are using the word "balkanisation"? It must be the latest bit of vocabulary doing the rounds on their BJP whatsapp groups. In a country that's statistically one of the most miserable in the world, I guess these little fantasies are all they have to live on...
