Khadijah Shah Arrives At Jail For Identification, Says She Is Feeling Unwell
Khadijah Shah – the alleged instigator of the May 9 Jinnah House attack and arson – was produced in the jail for an identification parade on the orders of Lahore's Anti-terrorism Court (ATC), on Wednesday.

Khadijah – granddaughter of a former army chief and daughter of ex-financial adviser Salman Shah – was reportedly kept in the prison van for over an hour before she was produced in the court.

The accused told reporters from inside the prison van that it was too hot inside the vehicle and that she had difficulty breathing. She also said that she had asthma and was feeling increasing unwell, as per Geo Urdu.

The police personnel told Khadijah they would move the van under a shed, and she was provided water.

The report further quoted police as saying that there were two more women in the van, besides Khadijah.

Khadijah Shah – a staunch PTI supporter and fashion designer – was taken into custody a day earlier for her alleged hand in inciting the mob attack at the Lahore Corps Commander's House earlier this month.

Riots broke out in multiple cities as PTI workers engaged in scuffles with law enforcers after Imran Khan’s arrest from the Islamabad High Court premises on Tuesday.

The party called for protests shortly after the arrest, with people taking to the streets and blocking the thoroughfares.

A mob attempted to barge into GHQ, while some were seen kicking and slamming the gate. Also, Corps Commander Lahore's residence was attacked and the premises was put on fire by violent protesters.

Another group, apparently of protesters, was seen gathering outside the Frontier Corps headquarters in Peshawar, and now the PM orders arrests.

In another instance, caught on camera, military vehicles were seen being pelted with stones by another mob at the scene.

Khan was arrested by Rangers in the Al-Qadir Trust case, by a heavy force of the paramilitary personnel from the premises of the courtroom where he had appeared to secure pre-arrest bail in multiple FIRs registered against him, followed by May 9 violent protests.
