Wife of Hizbut Tahrir’s spokesperson, who was allegedly picked up by spy agencies a few days back, demanded on Thursday that he be immediately released.
Addressing a press conference at the National Press Club on Thursday, she said her husband, Naveed Butt, was picked up shortly before Jumma prayers on May 11.
She was accompanied by her lawyer, Muhamamd Hayyat Sindhu, who told media that they had filed a writ petition in the Islamabad High Court. Chief Justice Iqbal Hameedur Rehman had directed the intelligence agencies to produce Butt on May 18, he added.
