The PTI leader was asked how he felt after his arrest and how his family manage to cope up with the situation. Recalling those difficult times, Fawad Chaudhry said it actually hurt him whenever his kids came to see him in jail.
During the show, the PTI leader also decried the way he was arrested and brought before the court handcuffed and with his head covered. Chaudhry claimed that the cops told him that they had clear orders to arrest him when he inquired about warrants. He also claimed that the cops also snatched his mobile phone during his arrest, which he is yet to get back.
Chaudhry was arrested on charges of “threatening ” members of the Pakistani Election Commission. His bail application was granted by the Islamabad court on the condition that he would refrain from using similar language to disparage a constitutional institution.
