“We are being assisted by the Lahore police,” said the Islamabad police official who spoke to the media.
the Islamabad police in its tweet said that they will transfer Imran Khan to Islamabad under their protection.
“Legal action will be taken against those who try to obstruct the execution of court orders,” they said.
The police said that Khan is avoiding arrest, adding that the SP went to the former premier’s room but could not find him there.
