Opposition Leadre in the Punjab Assembly Mehmoodur Rasheed and female workers were also held in the crackdown. DCO Naseem Sadiq said that protest could not be held at the Mall Road due to imposition of Section 144.

Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif has taken notice of the police action and directed them to immediately release the PTI workers and leaders.
