59

The Federal Investigation Agency on Sunday changed the prohibited funding case against former prime minister Imran Khan into a money laundering case, naming the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf as the main accused.

The country’s premier investigation agency has also served a notice and summoned Imran in the case with the sources privy to the development saying that he could be arrested if he does not appear.

The FIA Karachi chapter has sent notices to the PTI chief at his residences in Islamabad and Lahore, seeking his appearance in the case on October 31.

Imran Khan has been directed to appear before FIA on Monday, October 31 with the required documents.

According to sources, if Imran Khan does not appear before the FIA, he is likely to be arrested as the PTI chairman has not approached the court for his protective bail.

They said that three senior leaders of PTI from Karachi are also likely to be arrested in the case. An FIA team will depart to Islamabad or Lahore to arrest Imran if he does not appear on Monday.
