Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) President Parvez Elahi was arrested by anti-corruption officials from Lahore outside his home
The former Punjab chief minister was taken into custody by the anti-corruption personnel after pulling over his car near Zahoor Elahi’s residence in Lahore’s Gulberg area.
Elahi’s spokesperson has confirmed the development.
The development came after an anti-corruption court last week discarded his interim bail over his failure to appear before the court citing health issues.
His arrest was required in the Rs70 million corruption case related to the embezzlement of development funds allocated for the Gujrat district.
The anti-corruption court judge also declared Elahi’s medical certificate bogus which claimed that he had been experiencing chest pain.
