Despite the ban on entering Punjab, where by-polls in 20 constituencies are scheduled tomorrow, Azad Kashmir Assembly member Maqbool Gujjar arrived in Lahore on Saturday.

According to sources, Gujjar, a member of the PTI, was arrested and made to sign a government order.

Gujjar and SHO Atif also got into a spat, while police tried to arrest the minister.

"I am an Azad Kashmir minister, and I will not back down," Gujjar told SHO Atif.

The SHO instructed Gujjar to come with the police to the police station and stated that "we will discuss the rest there".

The sources said that the minister escaped police custody by sitting in a car and driving away from the scene.
