Security officials deployed outside Imran Khan’s Bani Gala residence would arrest him on the expiry of his protective bail granted by the court, he added.
“How one can become a head of political party in a democratic society who instigates people and have complete disregard of moral and democratic values, terming his opponents traitors?” he questioned, the report said.
The minister said they welcome Imran Khan to Islamabad and the security is being provided to him as per the law.
