Pakistan: Balochistan govt planning to impose ban on PTM

India Blooms News Service | @indiablooms | 08 Dec 2023, 09:20 am

The Balochistan government is planning to impose a ban on Pashtun Tahaffuz Movement (PTM), following the arrest of its chief recently.

Chaman Deputy Commissioner Raja Athar Abbas had said that Manzoor Pashteen was apprehended after armed men from his vehicle allegedly opened fire at a police vehicle, reported The Express Tribune.

PTM members, however, alleged law enforcement officers of initiating the gunfire.

They said the PTM chief escaped unhurt from the incident.

Balochistan Caretaker Information Minister Jan Achakzai was quoted as saying by The Express Tribune Pashteen has been handed over to the police in Dera Ismail Khan and exiled from the province.

He said that despite being under restriction, Pashteen entered the province and actively participated in ongoing protests in Chaman, addressing the gathering on multiple occasions.
