LAHORE: Punjab Chief Minister Hamza Shahbaz on Saturday ordered for immediate release of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) leader Shireen Mazari.

The Punjab CM said there should be an investigation against the Anti-Corruption Wing personnel who arrested Shireen Mazari. “If arrest is necessary for investigation then the law will take its course,” he said.

Hamza Shahbaz said that he did not agree with the arrest of Shireen Mazari, adding that the PML-N as a political party believed in respect for women.
