LHC orders Punjab IGP to produce Imran Riaz till May 22.

The Lahore High Court (LHC) on Saturday ordered the release of 123 workers of the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) detained following the party protests against Imran Khan's arrest.

LHC's Justice Anwarul Haq issued the ruling on a petition filed by PTI leader Farrukh Habib, declaring a notification issued by the government for their detention illegal.
