Maryam Nawaz, the chief organiser of PML-N, has rejected PTI chief Imran Khan’s claim that his wife Bushra Bibi was alone at his Zaman Park residence in Lahore when Punjab police conducted a ‘surprise search operation’ there earlier today.

The Punjab police had launched a surprise 'search operation' at the PTI’s chief residence – hours after he left to appear before a local court in Islamabad – and arrested several party workers.

Imran took to social media to announce that, “Punjab police have led an assault on my house in Zaman Park where Bushra Begum is alone”.

He questioned under what law the operation was being carried out, adding that “this is part of London Plan where commitments were made to bring absconder Nawaz Sharif to power as quid pro quo for agreeing to one appointment”.

Reacting to his statement, Maryam in a series of tweets, said if there was only a woman present inside the house then who was “firing bullets and throwing petrol bombs at the police from inside?”

She also shared a purported video on her Twitter timeline wherein a man can be seen throwing some explosive from the PTI chief’s Lahore residence.

“Didn't I say that this [PTI] is a terrorist group whose leader is housing miscreants and trained terrorists in his house to avoid the law and punishment? Previously, such scenes were seen only in matters related to terrorism. Shameful!,” she added.

In another tweet, Maryam said brave politicians do not fear arrest and accountability. “Only thieves, bandits and terrorists fear arrest and accountability.”

Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif also hit out at the former premier, saying, “Imran Niazi's antics of the last few days have laid bare his fascist and militant tendencies”.

“From using people as human shields to throwing petrol bombs at police to leading 'jathas' to intimidate judiciary, he has taken a leaf out of the RSS book,” he added.
