PTI slams Maryam’s Govt after 2-week Ban Imposed on Adiala jail

Govt imposed a 2-week ban on all visits and interviews in Adiala Jail.

Citing “security” concerns, the Punjab govt imposed a two-week ban on all public visits, meetings and interviews at Rawalpindi’s Adiala jail.

PTI leaders viewed this as a calculated move to keep them from meeting party founder Imran Khan, who is being held at the facility.

As per a letter from the Punjab Home Department to the chief of prisons in Punjab, which Dawn.com was able to get, the decision was made due to security alerts that suggested possible threats from anti-state terrorist groups that were plotting targeted attacks on Adiala jail with the help of external opponents.

As a preventative action against these detected threats, the agency urged the jail chief to immediately suspend meetings, interviews, and public visits within Adiala Jail for a period of two weeks.

This order came after the police and the Rawalpindi Counter Terrorism Department (CTD) allegedly prevented an attempted attack on the jail, leading to the detention of three terrorist suspects.

Imran Khan, Parvez Elahi, and Shah Mahmood Qureshi, two prominent PTI leaders, are among those being held at Adiala jail.

PTI leaders, suach as Barrister Salman Safdar, expressed their annoyance at not being able to see Imran Khan because of the ban, blaming it on security considerations.

Barrister Gohar Ali Khan, the chairman of the PTI, denounced the general prohibition and emphasized that Imran’s family and attorneys were not informed beforehand. He emphasized the gravity of the situation by mentioning Imran Khan’s past murder attempts and voicing worries for his safety.

Joining the chorus of protest, National Assembly Opposition Leader Omar Ayub Khan emphasized how the limitation disobeyed court orders and reaffirmed the PTI’s demand that the prohibition be immediately reconsidered.
