President's Political Opponent Arrested
Khan Muhammad Dahri from Nawab Shah, has been arrested in Dubai after issuance of the red warrants by FIA. He contested election as an opponent of Faryal Talpur in 2005, and both the contestants obtained 328 votes, but Faryal Talpur won the seat through toss. The case was registered against Khan Muhammad during the election campaign for Nawab Shah Distrct Nazim seat. During the same election campaign , Sakrand Police involved him in a murder case , but afterward his name was excluded from the FIR. However, after the PPP government came into power, his name was again included in the FIR. So , he left the country. One of his relatives said that Khan Muhammad left the country because he was fearing to be killed. Some people say that Khan Muhammad is targeted due to being political opponent and his arrest is the political revenge. This is first case case in which a political person has been arrested through res warrants. It may not prove the poineer case of a long chain of arrests.
