ISLAMABAD: DJ Butt, the person who gained fame by playing music at Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) sit-ins, has been arrested, according to a tweet by PTI.
Sources have told The Express Tribune that Butt was arrested on the charge of “inciting violence in the city of Islamabad” after midnight on Thursday.
Butt first met PTI chief Imran Khan in 2011. Since then, he has been with the party and plays music at many of their sit-ins.
The tweet claimed that the Sharif brothers unnecessarily had him arrested for doing his job.
Since the start of the Islamabad sit-ins, PTI leaders have accused Pakistan Muslim League – Nawaz government of arresting PTI supporters to prevent them from attending the protest in the federal capital.
