Qadri likely to be detained

LAHORE: Punjab government has completed its homework against Pakistan Awami Tehreek (PAT) Chief Dr. Tahirul Qadri who is planning ‘revolution march’ on Islamabad. The government is considering detaining Dr. Qadri under sections 3 pr 16 of Maintenance of Public Order (MPO) to avoid any law and order situation.

The government is considering house-arresting Dr. Qadri for one month. According to the sources, decision on this issue will be reached soon.

PAT Chief’s name is likely to be put on the Exit Control List (ECL) because of a case registered against him for allegedly inciting people to violence. The government thinks that Tahirul Qadri may attempt fleeing from Pakistan, claim sources.

On the other hand, investigations are being carried out against Dr. Tahirul Qadri in the money-laundering case while several other cases against him are in pipeline. Agencies
