As Imran Khan Heads To Islamabad Court, Pak Police Enter His Lahore Residence

Islamabad: A vehicle in the convoy of former Pakistan PM Imran Khan met with an accident on Saturday as he headed to Islamabad in connection with the hearing into the Toshakhana case.

Reportedly, Pakistan Punjab Police entered the house, of former Pakistan PM Imran Khan in Zaman Park by breaking the main door on Saturday.

The PTI chairman also tweeted about the incident.

 Several videos of police outside the former PM’s house have emerged over the internet.

Earlier on Saturday, Imran Khan departed for Islamabad from his Zaman Park residence in Lahore.

The region is reportedly placed under heavy security in advance of Imran Khan’s visit to Islamabad’s Judiciary Complex in order to maintain peace and order and prevent anything unpleasant from happening.

On Friday the Pakistan government shifted the Toshakhana case hearing venue from the additional sessions court to a comparatively safer Judicial Complex over security concerns of Imran Khan, Pakistan-based Dawn newspaper reported.

Khan will appear before Additional Session Judge Zafar Iqbal in the case after he issued the former prime minister’s non-bailable arrest warrants after he had frequently skipped court dates, alleging “security threats” from his attorney. On March 14, when the Islamabad police travelled to Lahore to arrest Khan in accordance with the court’s instructions, they encountered resistance; as a result, more than 60 police officers from Islamabad and Punjab were hurt, and several PTI workers were also hurt, Geo News reported.

Meanwhile, Imran Khan also received protective bail in nine cases by Lahore High Court (LHC). The protective bail was approved for five cases in Islamabad and three cases in Lahore. Imran Khan secured bail in the cases filed in Lahore till March 27, whereas, the protective bail in five cases in Islamabad was approved till March 24.
