The Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) arrested Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) leader Abdul Basit Chaudhry while he was attempting to flee to Afghanistan.

The PTI leader got arrested at the Torkhum border as he was trying to cross the border.

According to an FIA report, the accused is on the Exit Control List (ECL), and he had a plan to move from Afghanistan to Europe.


Last month, in an interview, the caretaker information minister of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) said that there is a possibility that the leaders of PTI Swat are hiding in Afghanistan.
