What is more, police hooked few Christians including ex-Member of Punjab Assembly Kamal Chughtai and others including women and brought fabricated terrorism charges against them.
On June 22, a delegation of Christian leaders including ex-MPA Kamal Chughtai, MPA Shakeel Ivon , ex-MPA Tahir Naveed Chaudry, Reverend Father Pascal, Ms Tahira Anjum, Reverend Bashir Khurshid, Advocate Sharafat Gill, Dawood Navees, Advocate Faisal Ilyas and others met with IG Punjab Police at his office.

On May 19, Police contingents from the Gulberg Police Station conducted a raid against the Christians in collaboration with other police stations. Police hooked Christians from outside the Pakistan Christian Life Ministries Church in Christian Town, a predominantly Christian neighborhood in Faisalabad.
The commotion left Christians residing of the Christian Town fleeing as they feared further police raids in the area. Subsequently, police registered a false case of terrorism against ex-MPA Kamran Chughtai, and subjected him and other Christians to inhumane torture.
