Minister for Interior Rana Sanaullah on Sunday said that the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf chairman Imran Khan Niyazi has been nominated as accused in over dozen of cases including rioting, sedition, chaos and armed attacks at the federation.

In a series of tweets, the minister said the security detail being deployed outside the Imran Khan’s Bani Gala residence (according to the law) would arrest him on the expiry of his protective bail granted by the court.

The minister said they welcome Imran Niazi to Islamabad and the security being provided to him was as per the law. “How one can become a head of political party in a democratic society who instigates people and have complete disregard of moral and democratic values, terming his opponents ‘traitors’?” he questioned.

Meanwhile, amid rumours of an alleged plot being hatched to assassinate han, the Islamabad police department said on Saturday night that the security agencies have been put on high alert in adjoining areas of Bani Gala in the city.

Section 144 has already been imposed in Islamabad and gatherings have been banned, the Islamabad police spokesperson said on Saturday.

“In view of the expected arrival of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan in Bani Gala, which is a residential area located in Islamabad, security in the area has been beefed up and a high alert has been sounded. However, until now Islamabad Police has not received any confirmed news of return from Imran Khan’s team,” Islamabad Police tweeted.

“Security Division has deployed dedicated security in Bani Gala. A list of people in Bani Gala has not been provided yet to Police. Section 144 is imposed in Islamabad and any congregation is not allowed as per orders of District Magistrate,” it said.

“Islamabad Police will provide complete security to Imran Khan as per the law and reciprocal cooperation is expected from Security teams of Imran Khan as well,” the police added.

Hassaan Niazi, nephew of Imran Khan said that if anything happens to the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chief, the act will be treated as an attack on Pakistan.

“Anything happens to our leader Imran Khan, will be treated as attack on Pakistan. Response will aggressive - the Handlers will also regret,” Hassaan Niazi, nephew of Imran Khan said.
