RAWALPINDI - City District Nazim Raja Javed Ikhlas along with his allies amid tight security presented himself before City Police Officer (CPO) Rao Muhammad Iqbal for court arrest at his office here on Friday but police did not arrest him. The road, leading to CPO Office as well as District Nazim office was presenting a war-like situation as a heavy police force both from Punjab Police and Elite Force jawans were deployed there. It was also blocked from both sides by erecting barriers and no one was allowed to cross it. The police also barred media (Print and electronic) to cover the event from inside the CPO premises. District Nazim Raja Javed, showing his solidarity with the media persons, decided not to face the CPO and went back to his office. According to details, a good number of male and female members of LBs from Rawal and Pothar Towns besides nazims of eight UCs of the city, including ex-MNAs and MPAs Raja Basharat, Fiaz-ul-Hassan Chauhan and Raja Nasir, with black ribbons on their arms, gathered early in the morning at District Nazim office. As District Nazim Raja Javed Ikhlas left his office for the CPO office, the members encircled him and chanted full-throated anti-government slogans and marched towards the CPO office. The slogans included 'Javed Ikhlas Zindabad', 'Jamhori Idaru Ke Sath Imtiazi Salook Band Kero' and 'Jhooti FIR Kharij Kero' etc. However, the policemen blocked the way of the protestors led by Raja Javed Ikhlas and Potohar and Rawal Towns Nazims Raja Hamid Nawaz and Sh Rashid Shafique by making hands-chain and also closed the main gate of the CPO office. On this the members of LBs tried to push the police contingents and remove the barricades, however, some senior police officials, including SSP (Operation) asked Raja Javed Ikhlas to meet the CPO alone. District Nazim, rejecting police officials' suggestions, took Potohar Town Nazim Raja Hamid Nawaz, Rawal Town Nazim Sh Rashid Shafique, District Naib Nazim Muhammad Afzal Khokhar and Murree Nazim Sardar Salim along with him and moved towards the CPO office. When he reached the gate, SSP (Operation) Khurram Shehzad announced the directives of CPO Rao Iqbal that media persons are not allowed to come inside the office. On this the media persons protested and decided to boycott the event but District Nazim Raja Javed Ikhlas after consulting other nazims decided to go back to his office. "I will not appear before CPO without media persons", the DN said. The protestors marched towards DN office while chanting slogans against CPO Rao Iqbal.
