Muhammad Asif aka DJ Butt, an entertainer whose beats punctuated political rhetoric at the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) sit-in in Islamabad last year, claimed on Monday that the party owes him Rs60 million.
“My total payment for playing music at the PTI sit-in was Rs110 million but I have only been paid Rs50 million so far,” DJ Butt said, while speaking to local media .
“I will go to court if my payment is withheld,” he said, adding the party still owes him Rs50 million.
Further, Butt, who has been working with PTI since 2010, said, “My daily pay was Rs0.6 million.” PTI leader Naeemul Haque said the party is settling Butt’s dues and will resolve the matter soon.
In September 2014, during the sit-in, Butt was arrested by law enforcers on charges of abetment.
