On the other hand, a large number of PTI workers are present outside Imran Khan’s residence in Zaman Park for protection of their leader and ready to thwart any attempt by police to arrest of the former prime minister.

Sources said that the charged PTI activists present outside the residence of PTI chief are raising slogans in favour of Imran Khan and against the police. In case of any action by the police, there is a fear of a clash between law enforcers and the PTI workers, sources said.

Imran Riaz’s lawyer, Mian Ali Ashfaq, confirmed the news on his official X (formerly Twitter) account.

Media reports indicate that on May 29, Chief Justice of Islamabad High Court, Justice Aamer Farooq, allowed Imran Riaz to perform Hajj. However, despite the court’s permission, he was barred from travelling to Saudi Arabia for Hajj on June 3 and had to return home, stating his intent to seek court intervention again.

On June 12, the Islamabad High Court once more permitted Imran Riaz to proceed with Hajj. Yet, on the same day, he was arrested at Lahore Airport, clad in ihram, just as he was about to depart.
