Labour Party Pakistan, Friday (14 June) was shifted from Central
jail Bahawalpur to Kot Lakhpat jail Lahore. Though it seems comparatively
possible now for family members and relatives to call on Farooq
Tariq in jail but again it is the home secretary Punjab whose
prior approval is must. Home Secretary is also evasive and using
delaying tactics to provide LPP lawyer the attested copy of the
detention orders, which is a pre-requisite to submit a petition
challenging Farooq Tariq arrest in Lahore High Court.

Lakhpat jail, Sarmad Mansoor was died of heart attack on Thursday.
