Adil Raja, a YouTuber and social media activist, was detained by British officials on Wednesday; the reason for the detention is unknown, according to Geo News.

Raja, a staunch supporter of the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI), has cases filed against him in Pakistan under anti-terrorism laws.

Raja had already faced a number of complaints from the government in the UK.

The most recent of them were the May 9 riots, which broke out after the PTI leader was taken into custody from the Islamabad High Court as part of a £190 million settlement dispute.

The Pakistani government protested to UK authorities that Raja and other activists used social media to spread hate and anti-state sentiments.

The complaint further claimed that the outspoken PTI employee had distributed false information in an effort to undermine the nation.

A statement on the subject has not yet been made public by the London police.

Raja’s attorney Mehtab Aziz told Geo News that he hasn’t been able to reach his client for the past 24 hours.

“According to British law, the police give [lawyers] access to the person arrested,” he said, adding that he was awaiting a call from the police.
