The police kept conducting raids last night to arrest PML-N workers and leaders.
Sources said that the PML-N has been insisting to hold public meeting in Quaid-e-Azam stadium, Mandi Bahauddin but the administration has turned down the request. The administration has locked the gates of the stadium and deployed large contingent of police inside and outside the stadium.
The video was shot by Nawaz Sharif’s supporter Nasir Butt. In the video, judge Arshad Malik is recorded as saying that he is really upset as he did not do justice and his conscience is burdened.
“They have secret material against everybody. They called me and showed me a video. After watching it, I had no choice but to act upon what they said,” the judge says to Nasir Butt without naming anyone who showed him the compromising video, which was used to pressurise him.
Maryam Nawaz said the judge was blackmailed and forced to convict Nawaz Sharif by the powers-that-be.
