During Imran Khan, the chairman of the PTI, was declared ineligible for office on October 21, Mr. Saleh was detained after a protest and shooting event outside the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP). His post-arrest release of Rs. 100,000 in surety bonds was approved by the court.
The legislator and his two assailants, who are both members of the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa police, have been arrested on terrorism-related charges after they reportedly opened fire on the officers stationed outside the ECP for security purposes.
In addition, Mr. Saleh was accused with aiding and abetting, violating Section 144, and attempted murder.
The MNA allegedly instructed his security personnel to open fire, and they did so straight at the police, who “narrowly evaded” the shooting, according to the FIR.
The FIR claims that the MNA and his associates carried guns in order to do injury to people and disrupt law and order.
