According to reports, Shiekh has not yet been informed of his arrest by the Lahore police. His daughter, Ayesha Haleem Adil Sheikh has claimed that the police have not taken the family's concerns seriously.

We contacted the Gulberg thana which has control of the area my father was taken from, the police officer laughed at our faces and said he has no idea where @HaleemAdil and that they have no information about the arrest. If not the police, who has taken him?! #WhereIsHaleemAdil

The PTI has alleged that he was “abducted” in the early hours of Wednesday morning but no further information has been provided about his whereabouts.

Earlier in June, the leader had also expressed fears that a conspiracy is being hatched to kill him and had also written a letter to Chief Justice of Pakistan Umar Ata Bandial highlighting a “grave threat” to his life, allegedly by the Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) leadership.

 

Earlier, senior journalist and Express News anchorperson Imran Riaz Khan, the most vocal critic of the ruling coalition, had been arrested from Islamabad Toll Plaza late on Tuesday disregarding the fact that a court has already granted him a pre-arrest bail.

Imran Riaz, who is currently associated with Express News, had been implicated in a slew of cases that he says were motivated by his refusal to “stop speaking the truth”.

It is also pertinent to note that the PTI has been leading a vicious campaign against the security establishment since the toppling of its government in April this year through a vote of no-confidence. However, Imran Khan claims it was a conspiracy orchestrated and bankrolled by the United States.

Imran himself and his party blamed the military and have mounted a vociferous campaign – especially on social media – to directly point the accusatory finger at some senior officials.
