PTI leader Sher Afzal Marwat’s arrest by Punjab Police under section 3 MPO sparks public outrage across social media. He was leaving the Lahore High Court (LHC) after attending a lawyer’s convention when Punjab Police arrested him.
According to reports, Punjab police have transported Sher to the Mozang Police station. Sher accused K-P police of attempting abduction last week while en route to Gluabad near Chakdara for a party convention in Bajaur.
Sher stated that the police made a determined effort to abduct him as he approached Gulabad with 300 heavily armed cops involved. This arrest came after a First Information Report (F.I.R) was filed on Dec 3, 2023, against Sher and PTI workers for organizing a worker’s convention in Swabi. However, the KP police released him after an uproar from the PTI workers and supporters.

Now, the Punjab Police has brought up Sher Afzal Marwat’s arrest again within days for the second time. It has sparked the outrage of PTI workers and supporters and has taken a social media storm. The hashtag “Release Sher Afzal Marwat” is trending on X (formerly Twitter).
One supporter wrote Lahore, your collective voice matters. Stand outside Lahore High Court, demand answers, and use the hashtag to raise your voice for justice.
Another PTI supporter shared the video of Sher while arrested with a caption that the lawless and shameless system going to new low-level things and then they want we need to respect them shame on you guys.
Sher Afzal Marwat has previously faced the charges of Section 144 violations of the Criminal Procedure Code 1898. It authorizes the district administration to stop any unlawful or unauthorized gathering, rally, assembly, protest, or gathering of over five individuals.
KPK Police arrested Sher for a Section 144 violation on December 9, 2023. However, he had previously obtained protective bail from the Islamabad High Court (IHC).
Another case was brought against him in KPK in October for allegedly inciting people against governmental institutions via social media.
