LAHORE: The Lahore High Court has been requested to restrain Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf Chairman Imran Khan from shutting down Islamabad on October 30. Petitioner Atif Sattar has made this request in an already pending case against the PTI’s Raiwind rally held on September 30. The petitioner has alleged that Imran in his speech at Raiwind transgressed fundamental rights of freedom of speech and must be restrained from inciting hatred, contempt and disaffection against an elected government and locking down the federal capital. Sattar has also requested the court to punish the PTI chief for sedition if he continues his ‘unconstitutional’ activities.
