He added that the illegal arrest of MNA Jamshed Dasti was disgrace of an elected representative of the people.
He added that he tried to meet Dasti but he was denied permission by prison officials, saying that they had orders from high up not to allow anyone meet Dasti.
Quraishi said that first Sheikh Rashid was attacked and now Dastio was sent behind the bars without any reason. All these events are meant to announce boycott of JIT’s proceeding, he added.
On the occasion he said that Dasti’s arrest was condemned by all opposition parties leaders inlcuding PTI chief Imran Khan, who demanded of his immediate release. He added that they had also written letter to Speaker National Assembly urging him to issue production order of Dasti.
Earlier, Quraishi and MNA Amir Dogar indulged in arguments with police officials outside Mutlan Central prison when they were not allowed to meet Dasti.
