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.

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