Punjab Police on Thursday arrested the local businessman Mian Kashif Zameer who hosted the visit of Turkish star Engin Altan Düzyatan from the popular Diriliş: Ertuğrul series to Pakistan.

According to the details, Kashif Zameer is the blonde-haired host, who is seen everywhere from the Turkish star’s press conference to the snippets of him online. Police revealed that Mian Kashif Zameer is a wanted criminal, with nearly 8 cases booked against him. Armed men and accomplices of Zameer were also taken into custody by the police.

According to a criminal record of Kashif Zameer, four cases were registered against him in Lahore, two each in Toba Tek Singh and Sialkot. Cases were registered against Kashif Zameer in Lahore’s Mozang, Chohang, Civil Line and Township police stations.

These cases include serious offenses including fraud, betrayal of trust, car theft, and robbery.

Police also revealed that Kashif Zameer, who was seen everywhere with the Turkish star during his first-ever visit to Pakistan, had struck a deal of one million dollars with Engin Altan but paid only half of it.

It may be recalled that Engin Altan Düzyatan, the lead actor of the Turkish TV show Diriliş: Ertuğrul, has reached Lahore.

The Turkish Embassy in Pakistan has tweeted a photo of the actor at the Lahore airport. He was invited by directors of the Chaudhary Groups.

The show was aired in Pakistan on PTV on the prime minister’s request and became an instant hit. It also broke the world record for the most subscribers on YouTube.

According to the actor, the crew knew the show would do well from the very beginning but had no idea that it would get so much attention around the world.
