Pak ex-PM Imran Khan is likely to be detained today


Islamabad – Imran Khan, the former prime minister of Pakistan, will be apprehended by Islamabad Police in the next 24 hours, according to sources quoted by Geo News.

He was detained in connection with a case for making threats against police officers and judicial magistrate Zeba Chaudhry on August 20 at a gathering in F-9 Park.

As a result of Khan’s persistent absences, Civil Judge Rana Mujahid Rahim also made public the three-page reserved verdict and issued non-bailable arrest warrants.

According to Geo News, Khan submitted a request for an exemption from physically appearing before the judge, requesting authorization to participate in the court sessions digitally through video link.

According to sources, many choices were made at a conference between Islamabad and Lahore police officials when the authorities returned to the city to arrest Imran Khan for the second time.

The sources told Geo News that Islamabad police would get in touch with Khan’s chief security officer before heading to Zaman Park.

Imran Khan has been the subject of two separate non-bailable arrest orders from different courts. He hasn’t appeared before them often, though, instead, he hosted a gathering in Lahore where he declared that this Sunday will be the day of a historic rally.

When the authorities went back to the city to detain Imran Khan for the second time, numerous decisions were reportedly made at a meeting between Islamabad and Lahore police officials.

According to the sources, before visiting Zaman Park, Islamabad police would make contact with Khan’s chief security officer.

Two distinct non-bailable arrest warrants for Imran Khan have been issued by different courts. Though he hasn’t frequently addressed them, he did organise a gathering in Lahore when he announced that this coming Sunday will be the day of a historic march.

A total of 37 cases have been brought against Imran Khan around the nation. They include court cases, police and Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) investigations, as well as actions taken by the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) against the leader of the PTI.
