Lahore police took this action at a time when PTI chairman Imran Khan is on his way to Islamabad to appear in the trial court in the Toshakhana case. The former PM is set to appear in the court before 5 pm on Saturday, as per the order of the Islamabad High Court.

On Friday, the IHC suspended non-bailable arrest warrants for Imran Khan for one day (Till Saturday 5 pm) to allow Khan to appear in the country.

The IHC gave this order a day after the trial court judge Zafar Iqbal upheld the arrest warrants of Imran Khan and rejected Khan’s plea to dismiss his non-bailable arrest warrant.

Meanwhile, police have rounded up over PTI 20 workers who put up resistance against the police action.

According to police, the raid was conducted to clear the PTI camps established near the residence of Imran Khan.

“Section 144 is imposed, you are kindly advised to disperse,” police announced before taking action at Zaman Park.

Accident in PTI cavalcade

An accident took place in the motorcade of PTI near Kallar Kahar. Many vehicles ramped into each other as one of the vehicles overturned near Hafizabad.

The PTI chairman and other important leaders remained safe in the accident.

Security beefed up in Islamabad

Police have deployed their officials at the main entrance and barriers were also placed at important places to avoid any mishap when the former prime minister appears in the trial court.
