K-P authorities issue arrest warrants for Manzoor Pashteen, Ali WazirThe Express Tribune (September 14, 2018)

PESHAWAR: Authorities in Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa ordered the arrest of Pashtun Tahaffuz Movement (PTM) chief Manzoor Pashteen, MNA Ali Wazir and six others.

A letter issued by a senior police official in Swabi declared Pashteen, Wazir, Dr Said Alam Masood, Fazal Advocate, Khan Zaman, Mohsin Dawood, Samad Khan and Noorul Salam as proclaimed offenders.

Police in Swabi confirmed to The Express Tribune that SP Investigation wrote to the political agents of North and South Waziristan seeking arrest of the PTM leaders.

According to the FIR, PTM workers held a gathering at cricket stadium in Swabi’s Shah Mansoor Town without required NOC from authorities. In the jalsa, the PTM chief and others made contemptuous statements against state institutions.

The PTM, formerly Mehsud Tahaffuz Movement, gained momentum following the extra-judicial murder of Naqeebullah Mehsud in Karachi. It sought capital punishment for the prime suspect in Naqeebullah murder case, former SSP Malir Rao Anwar, recovery of missing persons and removal of landmines in tribal areas.

A Jirga, formed by the K-P apex committee and comprising tribal elders, is holding negotiations with the group to resolve their issues.
