Names of ex, serving army officers and women relatives arrested over 9 May riots revealed

More than 100 people are being tried in military courts over violence that erupted after former prime minister Imran Khan was arrested last month, the Pakistan Army said Monday, adding that three officers had been dismissed.

Military spokesman Major General Ahmed Sharif Chaudhry said Monday that “102 miscreants are being tried in the already established military courts” in connection with attacks on more than 200 army sites.

“This was a huge heinous conspiracy against Pakistan,” Chaudhry told reporters in the garrison city of Rawalpindi. “People were instigated and provoked against the army.”

Chaudhry said three officers, including a lieutenant general, were dismissed after they “failed to maintain the security and sanctity” of army properties during the unrest.
“Strict disciplinary action” has been taken against a further 15 people, including three major generals and seven brigadiers, he said.

The ISPR director general also revealed that some women related to former military officers are also under arrest.

Although he did not share the names of the serving and retired officers and the women related to the military officers, senior Pakistani journalist Umer Cheema revealed the names in his YouTube show which he co-hosts with prominent journalist Azaz Syed.
