Prime Minister Imran Khan has approved the interior ministry’s summary to ban the Tehreek-e-Labbaik Pakistan, government sources told SAMAA TV Wednesday. The summary will now be tabled before the cabinet for its approval, the sources said. In its summary, the interior ministry said the religious group had damaged 30 vehicles of law enforcement agencies, while two policemen were killed in violent protests in Punjab. At least 2,063 workers of the TLP have been arrested and 115 FIRs lodged against them, according to the summary.
