Islamabad Police let Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan go to Lahore after he said in a video statement that he was being “illegally detained” even though he had been freed on bail by the Islamabad High Court (IHC).
The head of the PTI left the high court building more than three hours after he got a written order from the court about blanket relief in many cases. The former prime minister and state security were left in the car of the Islamabad deputy inspector general of security.
Imran Khan, the head of the PTI, sent out a video message about his long stay at the Islamabad High Court. He said that he was being kept there even though the court had given him freedom.
“They took me hostage and are keeping me here against my will. Imran said, “I want to tell the whole country that they have bad intentions. They want to do something else, and the whole country should be ready to protest.”
Earlier, the Islamabad Police said that security was put on high alert after shots were fired at police in the G-11 and G-13 sectors of the city.
The police stated, “The situation is being kept under watch.”
According to Aaj News, there were also gunshots near the Islamabad High Court (IHC), where Imran Khan is still waiting for the cops to give him a security clearance. He hasn’t left for Lahore yet, even though he has been in court for several cases.
Rangers, who were sent to protect PTI leader Imran Khan when he went to court, were called back to help the capital police deal with the issue.
In the meantime, law enforcement has started a search of the high court because of what happened.
