PTI's Arif Alvi, Imran Ismail released on Nisar's order
Nov 10 2016 by Desiree Burns
Over 70 activists of the Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) were arrested as they tried to march to party chief Imran Khan's residence here before a planned November 2 Islamabad lockdown protest against Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif. Khan has vowed to lock down Islamabad on November 2 to demand the resignation of Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif.
Khan has said that he wants to "shut down" the government following revelations that Sharif's children held offshore bank accounts, information first made public by the "Panama Papers" leak earlier in the year.
Sharif has refused to quit but says he'll face investigations to prove he and his family aren't involved in corruption.
He said that the prevailing situation in the country was a trial for the country's judicial system as it was responsible for protecting the democracy. The court has barred the opposition party of cricketer-turned-politician Imran Khan from holding planned anti-government street rallies in Islamabad.
Intermittent clashes between PTI workers and the police took place on different spots in the twin cities.
Party lawmaker Arif Alvi and another senior party official, Imran Ismail, were briefly detained on Monday, and bundled into a police van near Khan's home.

Holding offshore companies is not illegal in Pakistan, but Khan has implied the money was gained through corruption.
The administrative measures taken by the Government to prevent PTI from implementing its threat of locking down Islamabad were also necessitated by ground realities.
Mr Khan himself admitted in May that he used an offshore company to legally avoid paying British tax on a London property sale.
