Lahore : 1 Sep 2023: PTI leader and former federal minister Moonis Elahi has said his father Chaudhry Parvez Elahi was “abducted” from outside the latter’s residence in Lahore on Friday, hours after he was released in a graft case.
Taking to social media platform X (erstwhile Twitter), Moonis said: “After the high court’s orders and on the judge’s instructions police including court security were taking my father home. “As the car entered our street, it was stopped and he was abducted.” He added that if court orders were going to be “ridiculed like this maybe they should officially declare it”.
Footage broadcast on television channels showed men in plain clothes accompanied by uniformed Punjab policemen dragging the former Punjab chief minister out of his vehicle. Lawyer Latif Khosa can also be seen in the clip. He was sitting next to Elahi and was pulled out of the vehicle so the men could reach the PTI president.
