LAHORE: On May 23, the Punjab police arrested fashion designer Khadija Shah after she surrendered herself.
Khadija is the daughter of former finance minister Salman Shah. She was nominated in a first-information report (FIR) filed at Sarwar Road police station. The Elan-owner was claimed to have played a significant role in the attack on Corps Commander House. Shah was wanted by the Lahore police under terrorism and other charges. Since then, Shah went into hiding after police started raiding houses to arrest instigators involved in May 9 attacks.
Police officials confirmed that Shah presented herself in the CIA head office, Lahore and surrendered herself. She has been shifted to an undisclosed location for interrogation. The development came after IG Punjab expressed his disappointment in the police department for not working hard enough to detain Shah. Since then, officers had started conducting more raids.
According to an investigative journalist, Umar Cheema, that Shah has been kept in the lockup of women police station, Lytton Road Lahore. Moreover, she will be taken to jail tomorrow for identification parade.
Shah has been a vocal PTI supporter on social media since a very long time. Earlier, she had called out digital rights lawyer Night Dad on her ‘selective activism.’ The designer was upset with Dad for not speaking up for the crackdown against female supporters of PTI.
This triggered a spat as Shah says she has been fighting for country’s independence’ and slammed Dad for just ‘posing’ as a digital rights’ activist, “You have not helped a single person ever – you continue going on foreign jaunts sponsored by corrupts.” Moreover, the Elan founder accused the lawyer of being a mouthpiece.
