Police action comes a day after Islamabad court issued arrest warrants for Imran Khan in alleged corruption and ‘terrorism’ cases.

Islamabad, Pakistan – Police have fired tear gas and water cannons at the supporters of former Pakistani Prime Minister and opposition leader Imran Khan outside his residence in the eastern city of Lahore.

The police action on Tuesday came as hundreds of the members and supporters of Khan’s Pakistan Tahreek-e-Insaf (PTI) party gathered outside Khan’s Zaman Park house in an upscale area of the city.

Police earlier said they were going to Khan’s house to hand him over the two arrest warrants in alleged corruption and “terrorism” cases issued by a court in capital Islamabad on Monday.

Television images showed police approaching Khan’s residence behind an armoured vehicle that was dispersing PTI supporters with a water cannon.

Khan’s supporters were also seen throwing stones at police officers.
