It is pertinent to mention here that yesterday chairman PTI’s lawyer Naeem Panjotha was arrested by the Federal Investigation Agency. Sher Afzal Khan Marwat – the lawyer of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Inaf – said in a statement on the social networking website Twitter that Panjotha’s clerk had confirmed the arrest but it was not clear whether it was a formal arrest or not as the first information report cannot be registered directly and without permission of Islamabad High Court. He said that Naeem Panjotha has reportedly been arrested by FIA. He said that Panjotha’s arrest would unite the legal fraternity and would not stop the PTI chairman’s legal team from discharging their professional obligations.
