However, Attaullah Tarar, was not present at his residence.
Reacting to the development, the PML-N leader criticised Punjab Home Minister Hashim Dogar and asked him not to cross the line in defence of the “anti-state narrative”.
“Hashim Dogar Sahib! you have turned out to be a very unserious character,” he added.
“What do you want to prove by sending the police to a house where I lived 15 years ago?”
The PTI leaders had earlier announced that the Punjab government will launch an inquiry and probe the May 25 “crackdown” on Azadi March participants. A committee was also formed by the party to oversee the matter.
In a statement, Punjab Home Minister Hashim Dogar asked Attaullah Tarar to present himself before the police, adding that law is awaiting him.
The police went to Tarar’s house to deliver a notice, clarified the home minister.
Tarar should present himself before the Lahore police if he understands the power of law, warned Dogar.
ہاشم ڈوگر صاحب میرا خیال تھا آپ وزیر ہیں مگر آپ تو انتہائی غیر سنجیدہ کردار نکلے۔ جس گھر میں، میں 15 سال پہلے رہتاتھا وہاں پولیس بھیج کر کسی راہگیرکو ہراساں کر کے کیا ثابت کرنا چاہتے ہیں۔ یہ حال ہے آپ کا، خاک وزارت چلانی ہے آپ نے۔ ملک دشمن بیانئے کے دفاع میں اتنا آگے نہ جائیں
