Imran reportedly holding a meeting with senior PTI leadership inside Zaman Park residence to determine course of action

Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) workers clashed with a heavy contingent of police outside Zaman Park in Lahore on Tuesday as law enforcement authorities attempted to arrest PTI Chairman Imran Khan once again.
A convoy of Islamabad police reached Zaman Park, where Imran resides, earlier on Tuesday to arrest him in the Toshakhana case. It is being assisted by Lahore police.

Law enforcement have detained two party workers while one police officer has been injured in the clashes. The police baton charged on protesters besides using water cannons and tear gas. In response, the protesters pelted stones at police vehicles. Police also tore down the camps of PTI workers on the premises.

Moreover, the law enforcement has called additional police force and water cannons to Zaman Park.

Meanwhile, it has been reported that Imran is holding a meeting with senior PTI leadership inside Zaman Park residence to determine the course of action.

Remarks on woman judge: Islamabad court suspends Imran’s arrest warrant

On Monday, a district and sessions court had rejected Imran’s exemption application and upheld the non-bailable arrest warrants issued for him in the Toshakhana case over his persistent absence in the case hearings.

Speaking to Aaj News on Tuesday, PTI’s Hassan Niazi confirmed that a warrant has been issued against Imran.

He cautioned the law enforcement agencies against creating unrest.

He also said that “law enforcement will leave no stone unturned to fulfil court’s order. Court warrants are outstanding against Imran.”

When asked where will the police take Imran after arresting him, he said “let us first arrest him first and then we will inform the media”.

“We expect people to cooperate with the officials in this regard,” he said.

In a tweet, PTI urged party workers to gather outside Zaman Park. Subsequently, a large crowd accumulated outside Imran’s residence.

  • Shah Mahmood Qureshi’s remarks

    Addressing media outside Zaman Park, PTI Vice Chairman Shah Mahmood Qureshi said “we want to remain peaceful and we do not want bloodshed”.

    “I want to read the warrant first and then I will talk to Imran who will discuss the matter with his legal team,” he said. “We want to resolve the issue through talks and discussions.”

    He warned the law enforcement not to create an environment of terror.

    He also asked them to stop the use of tear gas and water cannon.

    At the time, when the police arrived, Imran’s Chief of Staff Senator Shibli Faraz received the warrant for the PTI chief’s arrest and informed the police that the former prime minister was not at Zaman Park.

    Addressing party workers outside his Lahore residence afterwards, the former premier said that he had never “bowed before any man or institution, and will never let you do so as well”.

    The PTI chief said that he had called party workers to Zaman Park to pay tribute to them for the way they participated in the ‘Jail Bharo Tehreek’.

    Earlier on Tuesday, a district and sessions court in Islamabad suspended the non-bailable arrest warrant for Imran issued on Monday in a case related to using threatening language against additional sessions Judge, Islamabad, Zeba Chaudhry, Aaj News reported.

Imran Khan's arrest: Police take control of Zaman Park residence's gate amid scuffle with PTI workers
LAHORE: Law enforcers and Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) workers clashed Tuesday as a heavy contingent of police reached Zaman Park to arrest former prime minister Imran Khan in the Toshakana case — the only case in which his arrest warrants are not suspended.

A team of Islamabad police has been in Lahore since yesterday to comply with the court orders to arrest the PTI chairman — who faces a number of cases in different cities.

The police, although observing restraint, are using water canons to disperse the party's workers as they move ahead in their quest to arrest Khan, and they are around 90 metres away from his residence.
The law enforcers are in Zaman Park in line with court orders as on Monday, a district and sessions court in Islamabad restored the former prime minister's non-bailable arrest warrant in the Toshakhana case.

Last week, the IHC suspended the non-bailable arrest warrant for Khan issued by the local court issued due to the PTI chief's continuous absence and directed him to appear before the lower court on March 13 — and he failed to comply with the orders yet again.

This is the second time in less than 10 days that the police have arrived at Zaman Park to apprehend the deposed prime minister.

As the party's workers resorted to stone-pelting, a policeman suffered injuries on his face. Meanwhile, the law enforcers have also arrested the PTI workers.

'Let us first arrest him'​

DIG Operations Islamabad Shahzad Bukhari is leading the police party that has surrounded Khan’s residence in the city’s posh area.

While talking to the media, the police official said: “We have come to comply with the warrant. We know the details of the case but cannot discuss”.

“Where will you take Imran Khan after arresting him?” a journalist asked the official.

To this, DIG Bukhari said: "Let us first arrest him and then we will inform the media".

Imran Khan 'Life in danger'​

Meanwhile, PTI leader Farrukh Habib said that he is going to talk to the police, terming the move "dangerous" for Khan.

He said that they will inform the police that these warrants are being challenged in court.

"I don't think that police need to take any extreme step. We don't want to put Imran Khan in any situation where his life is in danger."

Habib mentioned that arrest warrants were suspended by the court in the judge-threatening case and the warrants for which the police are here, will also be suspended.

In a tweet later, PTI Senior Vice President Fawad Chaudhry said that the party leaders have moved the IHC against the arrest warrants issued in the Toshakhana case.

"We expect the hearing shortly. Shibli Faraz and Barrister Gohar have reached Islamabad High Court," he added.
