A list of people arrested under the state of emergency has been compiled by The Friday Times Features Desk, with help from the HRCP, PPP (Sindh), PML-N, Jamaat e Islami (Punjab), and the PTI. While some have been released, many remain incarcerated. This list includes journalists, lawyers, political workers and activists alike, yet it is far from being an exhaustive list.

Please see the List of Arrests for arrests made in Punjab, Sindh, Balochistan and NWFP.

The former presidents of Sindh high court bar association, Mr. Akhter Hussain and Mr. Abdul Hafeez Lakho have been arrested by the police under MPO and ordered to be detained for 90 days in Central
Prison, Karachi. These two were managing the lawyers’ movement after the arrest of Mr. Abrar Hassan, the current President of the Bar. The spade of arrest of lawyers in the cities and interior of Sindh is continuing.

  1. I have cross-linked your detainee pages with the list we’re trying to put together on WikiPakistan. You can edit that list directly, too, if you or other volunteers care to.
