After covering hundreds of nautical miles, hot air balloons carrying election banner of Imran Khan's Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf party landed in a remote village in Kalakot tehsil in the early hours on Saturday.

The banner carrying the photograph of Imran Khan, his party's name and a cricket bat as election symbol carried by a few hot air balloons landed on a tree in Biaragua village which is under the jurisdiction of Kalakot police station.

At about 6am on Saturday, Sallha Mohammad saw a banner with 'Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf party' written on it on a tree in the fields near his house.

Assuming that some anti-national elements have hoisted the Pakistan flag, he immediately informed the police.

A police party headed by inspector V Parihar rushed to the village and seized the banner. When contacted Parihar said that after reading the text written on the banner it was established that it was a banner of Imran's party which might have been sent in the air during an election rally somewhere in Pakistan.
