Imran Khan, Pakistan’s former Prime Minister, was arrested Tuesday in the capital Islamabad, according to his party and local media.

Rangers, the country’s paramilitary troops, took Khan into arrest from the Islamabad High Court, where he was attending the hearing on his bail plea, his spokesman Iftikhar Durrani told Anadolu news agency.

“Yes, he has been arrested after being manhandled,” Durrani acknowledged, alleging that the ex-premier had obtained bail in all of the cases against him.

Khan’s Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) party claimed that the former cricketer turned politician had been “abducted” from the court grounds.

“Former Prime Minister Imran Khan has been kidnapped from the Court premises.” “Numerous lawyers and ordinary citizens have been tortured,” Khan’s adviser Fawad Chaudhry said in a tweet.

This comes only days after Khan accused a senior intelligence official of plotting to murder him.​​​​​​​

According to local station Dunya News, Khan was arrested after the country’s anti-corruption office, the National Accountability Bureau (NAB), issued an arrest order for him in connection with a land scam.

Bushra Bibi, Khan’s wife, is also named in the case involving the illegal acquisition of land for an Al-Qadir University trust, of which the two are key trustees.

Interior Minister Rana Sanaullah and Islamabad police confirmed the arrest, adding that the former premier had been taken to NAB headquarters in the nearby garrison city of Rawalpindi.

Khan resigned as prime minister after losing a vote of confidence in parliament last year.

Khan survived an assassination attempt last November after making a series of accusations against the country’s powerful military, including its previous army chief.

He has also been named in a slew of corruption cases, which his supporters claim are political in nature. — Organizations
