Imran Khan, former prime minister of Pakistan and chairman of the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) party, has made his way from Lahore to the Islamabad High Court for the Toshakhana (state gift repository) corruption case. Khan’s convoy was delayed due to a car accident but the PTI leader said that the accident was part of a plan to arrest him so that he cannot lead the party’s election campaign. A committee has been formed to lead the party if Khan is arrested. Despite having protection from arrest in nine cases including the Toshakhana case, Khan believes that he will still be arrested. Meanwhile, police personnel that had camped outside Khan’s Zaman Park residence in Lahore for over three days to arrest him, entered the premises soon after Khan left for the high court. The 70-year-old is scheduled to appear before the court of Additional District and Sessions Judge Zafar Iqbal to attend proceedings on the complaint filed by the Election Commission of Pakistan for allegedly concealing details of gifts in his assets declarations. While stringent security measures have been implemented outside the judicial complex in Islamabad’s G-11, where Khan is expected to arrive, news reports from Lahore claimed that police have taken control of Khan’s residence at Zaman Park.
