The social media activist was picked up from his residence in Karachi on Friday by unknown persons.

According to his wife “around 14 to 15 government officials barged into their house in the wee hours and pointed guns at the family members”.

“Arsalan was picked up despite being innocent. The government officials took him with them in front of my children,” she added.

According to a statement issued by the Sindh Rangers spokesperson, the social media activist was arrested based on an intelligence report regarding his “links with a terrorist organisation”.
