In an unexpected move, the PML-N leader and spokesperson for Nawaz Sharif and Maryam Nawaz, Muhammad Zubair arrived at the Shahdara Police Station in Lahore on Wednesday to offer his arrest in the sedition case against him. Zubair, along with PML-N leader Attaullah Tarar, who has also been named in the sedition case, met the relevant station house officer (SHO). Debunking the case against him, the former governor stated that the case could not have been registered without the state’s involvement.The FIR – registered at Lahore’s Shahdara Police Station by a citizen, Badar Rasheed – states that Sharif has “conspired against the state and its institutions” by making “provocative speeches” from London. Some other prominent PML-N leaders have also been nominated in the complaint. The complainant claimed that Nawaz through his speeches, delivered respectively at the Opposition’s All Parties Conference (APC) and the PML-N’s Central Workers Committee and Central Executive Committee meetings on September 20 and October 1, committed criminal conspiracy. Meanwhile, former prime minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi said on Wednesday that he will go to Lahore on Thursday and try to get a case registered against Prime Minister Imran Khan over the allegations made on TV by former FIA director-general of Bashir Memon. “I also want to get a case registered. I will go to Lahore … go to Shahdara; my FIR will be against PM Imran Khan,” the PML-N leader said in a news conference in Islamabad. Abbasi noted that Memon had alleged that Prime Minister Imran Khan told him to register cases against PML-N leader Khawaja Asif under Article 6 of the constitution. He added that the claims made by the former head of the FIA had proven that PM Imran is obsessed with the opposition.
