LAHORE: Punjab police have arrested Ashiana actor and Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) supporter Kashif Mehmood here on Sunday, ARY News reported.
Punjab police have started crackdown against PTI leaders and workers across province and arrested a large number of activists from different cities including Multan, Lahore and Faisalabad.
ARY News reporter Babar Khan said thousands of PTI workers have so far been arrested across the province.
Police have prepared category-wise lists of PTI leaders to be arrested.
The ruling government had last Sunday devised a policy to systematically counter PTI’s proposed sit-in on November 02.
Sources said lists of PTI leaders were divided into three categories – A, B and C.
“Category A includes names of central leadership and elected assembly members of PTI, category B includes names of district and divisional officials and category C includes names of mobilizers, facilitators, activists and financers other than chairmen and councilors,” they said.
