On May 9th, violent protests were triggered in Pakistan after PTI Chairman Imran Khan was sent to jail in the Al-Qadir Trust case. Clashes erupted between protestors and the police authorities which also resulted in attacks on state and military property, for instance, the GHQ.
The violent protests led to the deaths of at least 10 people and injured several others, prompting the authorities to arrest thousands of PTI workers.
In response, the military and the government alike have vowed to try the vandals who attacked army installations under the Pakistan Army Act, Official Secrets Act, and other laws.
The PTI leadership — including the party chairman — have condemned the attacks in which the General Headquarters, Rawalpindi, was also targeted and called for a Supreme Court-led probe into the events.
In a recent interview with a private media channel, President Arif Alvi said PTI Chairman Imran Khan should openly condemn the May 9 events in which public properties and military installations were attacked.
