In another relief to the former ruling party, the central secretariat of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) was de-sealed on Thursday following a directive from the Islamabad High Court (IHC).

Last month, The Capital Development Authority (CDA) sealed the secretariat located in Sector G-8/4 of the federal capital for violating building by-laws as part of its crackdown on illegal constructions and encroachments.

The illegal constructions were demolished with a heavy contingent of police present outside its premises.

Following this, PTI laced into the government and protested against the CDA operation in Islamabad.

Earlier, Justice Sardar Ijaz Ishaq Khan had appointed a bailiff to ensure the implementation of the court’s order to unseal the PTI office. In compliance with the court’s instructions, the bailiff facilitated the reopening of the office.

After reserving the verdict on June 3 against PTI’s petition, the IHC today allowed PTI to reopen the party's central secretariat.

Sources reveal that Barrister Gohar, Raoof Hassan, and other party leaders will arrive at the secretariat, with a Qur'an recitation set for 6pm.
