LAHORE: The Punjab government issued orders to detain former chief minister and Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) President Chaudhry Parvez Elahi under 3 MPO for 30 days, The News reported.

The Lahore deputy commissioner’s order said that Elahi would be kept in Lahore Camp Jail, where he had already been confined.

This decision has been taken after the recommendation made by the Lahore district intelligence committee, the notification mentioned.

According to the documents obtained by The News, the committee has reported that Elahi is PTI’s leading member and a flamboyant orator.

He has the ability to incite people to create a law and order situation.

The Model Town SP and district intelligence committee have reported that Elahi is capable of creating mischief and disorder, and there is a real fear that his sympathisers can harm lives and property.

They have proposed to keep Elahi under custody for 30 days.

Two FIRs — no 22/604 and 22/1822 — have been registered against him at Qila Gujjar Singh Police Station, while an FIR 23/1150 has been registered at Ghalib Market Police Station.

According to investigations under these FIRs, it has been proved that Elahi and his companions are involved in arson, terrorism, and putting resistance against law enforcement agencies.

The deputy commissioner order said Elahi could contact the Punjab government against the decision.

Despite getting bail on July 11, Elahi remains incarcerated.
