LAHORE: The Punjab Police personnel came face to face with the Gilgit-Baltistan Police on Tuesday during an operation to arrest Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan

A heavy contingent of police surrounded the former prime minister’s Zaman Park residence in Lahore on Tuesday to arrest him in the Toshakana case — the only case in which his arrest warrants are not suspended.

Amid scuffles between the PTI workers and law enforcement agencies, a police party had managed to reach the gate of Khan’s residence where they were confronted by armed GB police — who were deployed to provide security to the former prime minister.

The Punjab Police had to abandon the plan and leave the PTI chief’s house after the GB police pointed guns at them. 

Police withdraw from around Imran Khan’s home

On Wednesday, security forces withdrew from around Imran Khan’s home, putting a halt to clashes that had erupted after police tried to arrest the former prime minister for not showing up in a case against him related to selling state gifts.

Police and other security personnel were seen leaving the Lahore neighbourhood were Khan’s home is located. Earlier, security forces had fired tear gas and water cannons at hundreds of Khan’s supporters who had cordoned off his home in an effort to prevent his arrest.

According to sources, the security forces retreated due to a Pakistan Super League match scheduled today at 7pm. After they withdrew, Khan was seen standing outside his home, wearing a gas mask and talking to supporters.

Information suggests that court magistrate Malik Muhammad Imran exonerated Imran Khan, Shah Mehmood Qureshi, and Sheikh Rasheed, the chief of AML, in addition to announcing the reserved verdict.

Acquittal of Sadaqat Abbasi and Ali Nawaz Awan from the Azadi March case was also ordered by the court.

It should be mentioned that numerous prominent members of the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI), like as Shah Mahmood Qureshi, former prime minister Imran Khan, and others, were apprehended by the police in separate complaint letters pertaining to the Azadi March.

Following unrest between police and the PTI leader in the provincial capital, 42 charges were filed against PTI senior leaders and workers for agitation.

The Islamabad High Court (IHC) had previously found former prime minister Imran Khan and PTI leader Shah Mehmood Qureshi not guilty in a case involving ciphers.

Decisions on appeals from the cipher case’s conviction were announced by Chief Justice Aamir Farooq and Justice Miangul Hassan Aurangzeb of the IHC.

The party’s vice-chairman and founder, who was convicted in a similar case in January of this year, received 10-year prison sentences apiece.

On the other hand, Qureshi’s arrest in the crimes that occurred on May 9th and Imran’s sentences in the Toshakhana and Iddat cases mean that they are unlikely to be released from prison anytime soon.
