It may be recalled that in Lahore, police and Rangers have conducted an operation at Yateemkhana Chowk to disperse the occupants.
During the operation, all roads leading to the Yateemkhana Chowk were closed, while there were reports of clashes between law enforcement agencies and protesters.
There were also reports of casualties during the clashes.
The federal information minister Fawad Chaudhry has on Sunday said that the operation against the proscribed religious party was originated after the miscreants launched an attack on police officers in Lahore.
Following the chaos created by TLP supporters in Lahore, Fawad Chaudhry said, “The state did not even yield to armed terrorist group Tehreek e Taliban Pakistan (TLP).”
“They kidnapped our Police and Rangers personnel following which we led an operation against them,” Chaudhry added.
“The Prime Minister is Aashiq e Rasool (SAWW) and he raised the objections over blasphemy on each available forum, the minister added further.
Earlier today, a group of miscreants attacked the Nawankot Police Station in Lahore where several police officers and rangers were trapped.
They also abducted 12 officers including a deputy superintendent of police (DSP). The miscreants were armed and attacked police personnel with patrol bombs.
