Islamabad, 24 May (HS): Several leaders of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf, including ex-Foreign Affairs Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi have been kept under house arrest.
According to media reports Rawalpindi Commissioner issued orders for house arrests of PTI leaders. Besides Qureshi, senior PTI leader Jamshed Cheema and his wife Musarrat have been kept under house arrest for 15 days.
