ISLAMABAD: Mian Kamran, chairman of Move on Pakistan party, was arrested during a pre-dawn raid on Wednesday on charges of vilifying armed forces and causing disorder.

Party sources told Geo News, Kamran was taken into custody from a guest house located near Abpara.

The party is known for the banners that cropped up in the federal capital and elsewhere in the country, inviting chief of the armed forces to launch a coup.

The banners drew strong reaction from mainstream political parties of the country, with some politicians terming it a conspiracy against the democratically elected government while others accusing the ruling party of being behind the campaign.

The Inter-Services Public Relations, media wing of the military, said on July 12 that it has nothing to do with the banners and the group that has placed them in different cities of the country.
