Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) workers staged a protest in front of Orangi Town police station against the arrest of PTI's newly elected Chairman Idris Samzai and Vice Chairman Dr Kabir Union Council 7 Mominabad Town, Orangi Town West District in what the party claims to be fabricated’ case.

At the protest, PTI workers raised slogans in favour of party chief Imran Khan.

PTI Sindh leader Haleem Adil Sheikh, MPA Dr Saeed Afridi and other PTI workers also participated in the protest.

After getting bail, the arrested PTI leader joined the protest and raised slogans against the police and the "Zardari Mafia".

Talking to the media, Haleem Adil Shaikh said that PTI workers would protest every time they are harassed.

He accused the Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) of trying to buy PTI workers to ‘buy the mayorship’.

When they failed in their efforts, they used police against our councillors, he added.

Taking a potshot at his party’s rivals, Sheikh said that Imran Khan would soon come to power with a majority of votes and everyone would be held accountable.

He said that the police need to correct its orientation as they should be focused on protecting the lives and property of the citizens instead of terrorising them.

Sheikh said that the law and order situation in Karachi was bad and extortion was on the rise.

"In Karachi, 15 citizens lost their lives over resistance during a robbery in a month, but the police are focusing elsewhere.” On the occasion, MPA Dr Saeed Afridi said that if the SHO Orangi Town was not removed from his post, the protest would be staged again on Friday.

Meanwhile, police have registered a case against political activists for attacking Orangi Town police station SHO.
