LAHORE: Renowned actor Kashif Mehmood has been taken into custody by Punjab police from his residence in Lahore.
Kashif’s brother Wasif said that police used a ladder to break into the house.
The recent detention comes as police cracked down against the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI), arresting dozens of the party workers and leaders.
They raided the residence of PTI’s MPA Sheikh Khurram Shehzad, while a member of Mirpur Youth Wing’s Central Committee Moon Chohan was also taken into custody.
At least 20 PTI workers were rounded up from Sheikhupura.
Meanwhile, PTI Chairman Imran Khan has directed the party workers to reach Bani Gala tomorrow ahead of Islamabad lockdown scheduled for November 02.
“I want all PTI workers to make it to Bani Gala tomorrow,” Imran wrote on his verified Twitter account
