“Fawad wasn’t produced before the Lahore High Court. Action must be taken against this [violation of court’s orders],” Farukh said late Wednesday evening as he talked to media.“Action must be taken against those powerful people, who dictated the Punjab police and provoked them to violate Court’s orders,” he added.
“The court summoned them [police] three times but they kept heading towards Islamabad. We were getting news even yesterday night that they will take Fawad to Islamabad,” Farukh added.
“Is this your neutrality? You have decided to crush a party. Go ahead, we are ready to face consequences,” he thundered.
