Canada Global (Web News) In order to arrest Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan in connection with an inciting remark against public institutions, a team of Balochistan police headed to Lahore on Wednesday.
The PTI supporters who earlier attempted to prevent the Islamabad police from going to the home of their party president will likely be charged when the police team arrives at Zaman Park with arrest warrants.
Police in Quetta, the capital of Balochistan, filed a complaint against the former prime minister on Monday for suspected hate speech against public institutions. The complainant stated in the FIR that the Islamabad police arrived at Zaman Park to arrest the PTI head but that he eluded them and afterwards delivered a video link address to his workers in which he incited the public against institutions.
According to the petitioner, Mr. Khan made unfounded accusations against security personnel and tried to incite unrest throughout the nation.
Officers from the capital police went to the former premier’s home on Sunday in an attempt to arrest him after an Islamabad court issued an arrest order for him in the Toshakhana case for obstructing proceedings.
The police added that Mr. Khan, 70, was “avoiding” arrest in a series of tweets, adding that a police superintendent had gone to the room but he was not present.
After the police made an effort to arrest him, Mr. Khan spoke to PTI employees at his Zaman Park residence and claimed he had been called to appear at courts for fictitious crimes and that his life was in danger.
