General National

The Azad Jammu & Kashmir Election Commission has issued an arrest warrant for Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) leader Ali Amin Gandapur.

Arrest warrants have been issued for his alleged violation of the code of conduct during the 2021 elections. The notification was issued on the application filed by lawyer Raja Zulqarnain Abid.

The commission directed the Dera Ismail Khan deputy commissioner to arrest the PTI leader and present him before the court by February 28.

Last month, Gandapur had approached the Lahore high court against his possible arrest and sought details of cases registered against him.

Gandapur, through his counsel, had contended that the government had been taking coercive actions against the PTI on political grounds, adding that undisclosed cases were registered against him in Punjab province also.

At the time, he had also asked the court to pass an injunctive order against his possible arrest in any undisclosed case.

Gandapur is a former federal minister who is also a Member National Assembly (MNA) and Provincial Assembly elect in the general elections of 2024.
