Mufti Kifayatullah was arrested under 3-MPO by Mansehra police. He was third leader of the JUI-F to have been detained from Islamabad in the past few days ahead of Azadi March.
Earlier a few days, two leaders of JUI-F were arrested from Islamabad and a case was lodged against them by the police. Police arrested Maulana Shafiqur Rehman and Maulana Muhammad Irshad from Shams Colony and seized banners for the JUI-F sit-in from their possession.
The duo were urging people to participate in the “Azadi march” being organised by the JUI-F against the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) government.
