ISLAMABAD – Ousted Prime Minister and PTI Chief Imran Khan landed himself in hot water with his fiery speeches as the populist leader continued to name institutions bluntly.
On Monday, Police in the Balochistan capital lodged a case against Imran Khan at the Bijli Road police station for alleged hate-mongering.
In the FIR, the complainant maintained that Islamabad police reached Zaman Park to arrest the PTI chief but he dodged his arrest and later addressed his workers through a video link in which he incited masses to revolt against institutions.
It maintained that the former premier hurled baseless allegations against the chiefs of sensitive institutions putting national security at stake. It accused him of creating unrest in the country. The words of outspoken politicians damaged the prestige of institutions, it added.
Imran Khan threatened countrywide protests in a bid to threaten the cops, the FIR reads.
In a similar development, Punjab police booked around 150 people including PTI chief Imran Khan for creating hindrances in the legal process.
Several PTI leaders including Shibli Faraz and other 150 unidentified suspects were booked against the complaint of SHO Police Station Secretariat Islamabad Nadeem Tahir for sections related to the alleged assault, armed rioting, and obstructing public servants from discharging their duties.
It accused the baton-touting activists of the former ruling party to hurl threats to law enforcers with dire consequences, the FIR added.
