LAHORE - Following issuance of non-bailable arrest warrants by the anti-corruption court, police and the anti-corruption team surrounded the residence of former Punjab Chief Minister Parvez Elahi for the second consecutive day in their pursuit to apprehend him. The court had ordered the authorities concerned to produce Parvez Elahi by June 2.
To comply with the court’s order, the Punjab Police mobilized once again on Friday to arrest the former chief minister. Parvez Elahi’s residence on Zahoor Elahi Road was cordoned off, with restricted entry and exit, and both roads leading to the house were blocked, redirecting traffic to alternative routes. The previous evening, a search operation was carried out at Parvez Elahi’s residence by a team comprising Director Anti-Corruption Imran Ahmar, SSP Operations Sohaib Ashraf, and SP Model Town Amara Shirazi. Their objective was to arrest him after the anti-corruption court in Lahore canceled his interim bail. However, they were unable to locate him and left empty-handed.
These recent developments mark the issuance of the second set of arrest warrants against Pervaiz Elahi within two days. The first warrant was issued on May 25 following the revocation of his bail, while the second warrant was issued on Friday by the Anti-Corruption Court.
