Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) demanded immediate action against Interior Minister Rana Sanaullah and the Inspector General of Police Islamabad for arresting and insulting the PTI MNA Saleh Muhammad.

PTI leader and former Speaker National Assembly Asad Qaiser, in an open letter to National Assembly Speaker Raja Pervaiz Ashraf, said that the federal police arrested the MNA on a baseless charge and then hanged a plaque around his neck in a very insulting manner.

A day earlier, Saleh, who was elected from NA-13 Mansehra, was arrested from outside the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) in Islamabad right after Imran Khan’s disqualification verdict.

The Islamabad police said that Swati was arrested for ordering his gunmen, two Khyber Pakhtunkhwa policemen, for firing at police in order to create a law and order situation.

The Islamabad police also tweeted a video in which an Islamabad policeman can be seen grabbing a sub-machine gun.

A leaked mugshot of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf Member of National Assembly Saleh Muhammad, in the custody of the Islamabad police, has also gone viral.

Qaisar in his letter said that due to its composition, role, and status, the parliament has an extraordinary sanctity and centrality in the country’s political system. “The constitution guarantees the complete protection of the life and property of the citizens, honor, and dignity of the people.”

He said that this heinous act of the federal police caused pain and suffering to a member of the National Assembly, his family, and his party.

The PTI leader said that the Pashtun people particularly the people of Mansehra are deeply saddened by this shameful treatment of their representative.

He said that as the head of the house, it is his [National Assembly speaker] responsibility to take immediate notice of this shameful action of the Islamabad police and take strict action against those who are responsible.
