Islamabad: Interior Minister Rana Sanaullah on Friday stopped the Islamabad police chief from raiding Bani Gala to arrest PTI leader Shahbaz Gill's driver, sources said.

PTI Chairman Imran Khan's aide Gill was taken into custody for inciting the public against state institutions, a spokesperson of the Islamabad police said on August 9. 

The minister contacted IG Dr Akbar Nasir to get the details related to Gill's case. 

Sanaullah stopped the IG from arresting Gill's driver, said the sources. He also expressed his displeasure over the arrest of the driver's wife.

On Thursday, the police took the wife of Gill’s driver in custody after they raided the latter's residence to recover the PTI leader’s mobile phone for investigation in the sedition case being pursued against him.

IG Nasir said that the driver is in Bani Gala and a raid needs to be carried out to arrest him. To this, Sanaullah said that the residents of Bani Gala should be taken into confidence regarding the driver.

The PML-N leader directed the inspector-general in case of any non-cooperation, adding that permission should be taken before the raid.
