Imran Khan comes down hard on ‘institutions’ amid his arrest controversy

LAHORE: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan on Sunday came down hard on the “state institutions” amid the arrest controversy in the Toshakhana case registered against him.

The deposed prime minister — who was ousted from power in April last year — vented his rage while addressing party workers and supporters at Zaman Park residence in Lahore who participated in the “Jail Bharo Tehreek” (court arrest movement).

Interestingly, Imran Khan’s chief of staff Senator Shibli Faraz had claimed that the PTI chief was not at his Zaman Park residence.

Khan’s appearance came amid a swarm of PTI workers gathered at Zaman Park after the Islamabad police arrived at Imran Khan’s Lahore residence to make his arrest for the Toshakhana case.

Additional sessions judge Zafar Iqbal of an Islamabad court had issued the former prime minister’s non-bailable arrest warrant on February 28 for continuously failing to appear before the court in the Toshakhana case.

Talking to the media at Zaman Park, an Islamabad police official said that they were in Lahore on the court’s order due to Khan’s persistent absence from the court.

The official said that they have arrived at Zaman Park under the leadership of a superintendent of police (SP).
