Police to launch crackdown on PTI’s financiers
In the wake of the recent stalemate between the former ruling party and law enforcers over deposed prime minister Imran Khan’s arrest fiasco, the federal police on Wednesday decided to launch a crackdown on all those who are providing financial support to Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI).
Police sources privy to the matter said a list of financiers, comprising 21 people, has been prepared and they will be arrested soon, as the police had warned them earlier.
It is pertinent to mention that in the recent meeting of the ruling Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM), it was unanimously decided to counter PTI with an iron fist under the law.

In a joint statement, the ruling coalition vehemently condemned PTI workers’ attack on police personnel and torching of vehicles.
The huddle declared that the entire nation has seen that PTI is not a political party but a clique of militants trained by banned outfits, for which there is evidence and proof, so it was decided to take action in this regard according to the law.
