LAHORE: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf key leaders MNA Sardar Latif Khosa and Salman Akram Raja and several others have been taken into custody by the Punjab Police in Lahore after authorities started arresting protesting PTI workers yet again.

A large number of PTI leaders and activists organised protest demonstration across the country on the call and back of PTI founder Imran Khan against the alleged rigging in the election.

The party leaders and activists also gathered at the GPO Chowk and other areas of Lahore to register their protest against the alleged rigging in the recently held polls. The arrest of PTI’s senior leader Sardar Latif Khosa was confirmed by his son Shahbaz Khosa.
