Mansehra police on Tuesday arrested Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam-Fazl (JUI-F) leader Mufti Kifayatullah.
According to the details, a heavy contingent of police was deployed outside his house. Police in its statement said that Mufti Kifayatullah has been arrested under Section 3 (power to arrest and detain suspected persons) of the Maintenance of Public Order. The law allows the government to detain any person involved in ‘suspicious activities’ for six months.
Earlier in October 2019, the law enforcement agencies and Mansehra Police also conducted a joint operation in Islamabad’s Sector E-11/3, and arrested JUI-F’s Mufti Kifayatullah for allegedly issuing derogatory remarks against the state institutions.
