Fawad Chaudhry, the leader of Imran Khan’s party, was seen fleeing the courtroom in an attempt to avoid arrest. Witnesses say he sprinted out of the room and quickly disappeared. It is unclear why he was running, or if the police were actually trying to arrest him.
The incident has caused a stir among Khan’s supporters, who have questioned the government’s motives in trying to detain one of their leaders. The police have yet to comment on the matter. Khan has also not commented on the incident directly, but he has said that he is deeply concerned about the safety of his party’s leaders.
