Pakistani police clashed with supporters of Imran Khan, the country’s former prime minister, on Saturday as they entered his property in Lahore.
The search of the house followed days of standoff and clashes between police and Khan's supporters around the property, where police had attempted to arrest Khan last Tuesday.
Khan said in a Tweet that his wife was at the property.
Khan, in office from 2018 to 2022, was set to appear in court in Islamabad on Saturday to address charges of unlawfully selling state gifts given to him by foreign dignitaries while in office.
Meanwhile Punjab police have led an assault on my house in Zaman Park where Bushra Begum is alone. Under what law are they doing this? This is part of London Plan where commitments were made to bring absconder Nawaz Sharif to power as quid pro quo for agreeing to one appointment.— Imran Khan (@ImranKhanPTI) March 18, 2023
