Pakistan’s Home Minister Rana Sanaullah has said that Imran Khan had fled from his Lahore home on Sunday to avoid police arrest. Sanaullah said that when the police reached former PM Imran Khan’s house to arrest him, he jumped over the wall of his house and went to the neighbour’s house.
Significantly, on Saturday, the Islamabad police had reached Lahore to arrest Imran Khan in the Toshakhana case. But this team returned without arrest. Khan’s legal team assured the police that he himself would be present in the court on March 7.
Minister Sanaullah said, “Yesterday when the police went to arrest Imran, there was a lot of drama. There are rumours that he jumped over the wall and hid at the neighbour’s house. After some time Imran came forward and gave a long speech”.
Meanwhile, on Monday also the court refused to cancel the non-bailable warrant issued against Imran. A case is going on against Imran Khan for selling gifts in Toshakhana.
Toshakhana is a government department in Pakistan where valuable gifts received by the Prime Minister, President or other senior officials during a visit are kept. These gifts usually include expensive watches, gold and diamond jewelry, expensive jewelry, souvenirs, diamond-studded pens, crockery, and carpets.
There is an allegation against Imran Khan that he had bought some gifts of Toshakhana by paying only 20 percent and some by paying 50 percent and sold them at an expensive price.
