Pakistan’s military ‘threatened by me’: Imran Khan
Pakistan’s former Prime Minister Imran Khan has formed a committee to lead his party if he is arrested, he told Reuters hours before an appearance before a court that has issued arrest warrants for him.
The former cricket legend has led country-wide protests after his ouster from power last year and has had a spate of cases registered against him.
The police unsuccessfully tried to arrest him on Tuesday, leading to intense clashes with his party workers.
“I have made a committee which will obviously take decisions once – if – I’m inside” jail, the 70-year-old said in an interview in his Lahore home before heading to Islamabad early on Saturday.
