LAHORE – Former ruling party leaders have cited unverified reports, suggesting fears of another assassination attempt on the former prime minister.

Senior Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf PTI leader Fawad Chaudhry said his party have received reports about a possible attack at F-8 Kutchery (district courts), and thus they cannot handover their party chief to Interior Minister Rana Sanaullah.

Fawad told the media that he met with the Chief Justice of Lahore High Court and urged him to summon CCPO Lahore to stop the ongoing assault on masses.

Chaudhry said the PTI leader would surrender to court, not to the government, calling on lawyers and people from all walks of life to join them in protest. The outspoken politician alleged that caretaker setup under Mohsin Naqvi was taking orders from Jati Umra.

Imran Khan himself decried that officials are acting outside the law in their attempt to detain him.

Slamming police and other law enforcement agencies for being politically motivated, Khan offered to sign a guarantee that he will appear in an Islamabad court days. The 70-year-old, who is facing flurry of cases, decried security concerns as two terror attacks had previously taken place at the court.

Meanwhile, at Zaman Park, Rangers have arrived at the residence of populist leader to implement court orders as police failed to arrest PTI Chairman.

Anti riots force is shelling the area to disperse the armed workers while more than 30 cops were injured as PTI activists clashed with cops for days.
