Javed Hashmi claim that police raid his house & arrest his son-in-law.
Makhdoom Javed Hashmi, a seasoned politician, has stated that police raid his house, taking his son-in-law, a candidate supported by the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI), and house servants.
According to Javed Hashmi, at around 1:00 am, some 20 Punjab Police officers surrounded his home, known as “Makhdoom Rasheed,” and broke the house’s sanctity by breaking the law and entering without a warrant. The senior politician claimed that the PTI workers’ convention was set to take place at the same time as the raid.

He posted on his X account, “My son-in-law Shahid Bahar Hashmi and grandson Qasim Hashmi have been taken into illegal custody.” Javed Hashmi stated, all the staff had been taken into custody. He said that the officers broke down his doors to get inside his home.
Despite the raid, veteran politician Makhdoom Zahid Bahar Hashmi’s close relative announced that the workers’ convention will be held at his home, with Meher Bano, the NA-151 constituency candidate, expected to participate.
