Parvez Elahi’s Gujrat residence raided by police

GUJRAT  – The Gujrat police raided the house of former Punjab chief minister and central PML-Q leader Chaudhry Parvez Elahion early Wednesday.

The Gujrat residence of Chaudhry Parvez Elahi, the Kunjah House was searched by the Punjab Police. A sizable presence of police personnel surrounded the residence and some police vehicles were seen patrolling the area around it.

According to PML-Q leaders, Elahi and his son Moonis Elahi were not at Gujrat residence but were in Lahore and that only their servants were present there. It is yet unclear in which case did police conduct the raid.

The police, though, denied taking a position.

However a couple of days back,  the driver and gunman of former chief minister Punjab Chaudhry Parvez Elahi were detained for reportedly transporting liquor bottles by the Islamabad police.

A complaint against the accused has been filed in the federal capital’s Secretariat Police Station under a number of provisions.

According to the police, the accused followed Elahi s orders and exchanged a briefcase containing liquor bottles for an envelope full of cash from Punjab House employee Faheem Mirza. The accused were also presented before a magistrate in Islamabad.

The defendants have also admitted in front of the court that the purported workers of Parliament House Islamabad, Faheem and Irshad, were frontmen for the former chief minister, according to a media report.

They stated that both suspected frontmen were involved in financial transactions on behalf of Chaudhry Parvez Elahi.

They also revealed that the purported frontmen for Elahi host private events at the former chief minister s home for him.

The accused stated that “Asim Cheema also organises private parties for Chaudhry Pervaiz Elahi,” adding that the alcohol bottles for the private occasion had also been obtained from Islamabad.
