LAHORE - A writ petition on Thursday was moved to Lahore High Court challenging arrest of workers of Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaaf.

A local citizen had filed the petition and said that Punjab government wanted to fail PTI public meeting and for this purpose, it had ordered police to raid at the houses of PTI workers and arrest them.

He said the arrest of PTI workers was illegal as every citizen had his right and liberty of movement. The petitioner prayed the court to order the Punjab government not to arrest PTI workers.
