The district administration sealed a cricket ground named after Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan in Karachi’s Gulshan-e-Iqbal neighbourhood on Saturday.
According to sources, the district administration sealed the Imran Khan cricket ground, which was created by former PTI MNA Alamgir Khan.
The district administration stated in a statement that the building was funded by the MNA’s development money because the cricket ground is controlled by District Municipal Corporations (DMC).
“The ground authorities have not obtained district administration approval for the name,” it said, adding that the boards would be dismantled as well.
After the arrest of former Prime Minister and Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf chairman Imran Khan from the grounds of the Islamabad High Court (IHC) last week, violent confrontations occurred across Pakistan.
Protests were held in both distant and big cities as party activists became agitated following the arrest of their chairman, with Balochistan, Punjab, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, and Islamabad requesting the armed forces to maintain peace and order.
During a PTI workers’ protest, army installations and the Corps Commander’s home in Lahore were attacked.
