Pakistan’s former Prime Minister Imran Khan on Wednesday claimed that the police have surrounded his house and he could be arrested at any time, so this may be his last tweet.
While addressing the nation in a live video message, Imran Khan tweeted, “Probably my last tweet before my next arrest. Police has surrounded my house.”

The Punjab police have reached outside PTI Chairman Imran Khan’s Zaman Park residence to arrest him, a Dawn.com correspondent present at the site has confirmed.
He said that Khan’s residence has been cordoned off by the police officials.
In a video message, Khan said, “I am afraid that Pakistan is on the route to destruction. And I fear that if we don’t use our brains now then we may reach to the point where we wouldn’t be able to collect all the pieces of our nation.”
Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chief further claimed that for almost a year, there is chaos in pakistan and an external force was used in order to prevent him as he is not the right person for the country. Even if it meant breaking the laws, or no election or even insulting the Supreme Court, Imran Khan should not be back.
He showed the Survey which shows that PTI is the most popular. Khan further stated that all the parties are afraid that if he is back then all the political parties will lose the election.
“If the election happened then Imran will win and they don’t care whether it is good for the people or not what they care about is that the corruption cases that have been closed during their governance would be out,” Khan said.
“I have defended my army across the world … I was a known face. Name another Pakistani who defended the army the way I did on international media,” Khan said.
“And I did it because I am a free man. I never accepted slavery,” he added.
He also claimed that the Pakistan Democratic Movement is deliberately trying to create a conflict between the PTI and the army.
“The cases that are being filed under military laws — it never happened before that without any investigation or independent inquiry … it was suddenly decided that PTI is a terrorist organisation,” Khan said.
In the video message, the PTI chief further stated that their party will be approaching the court, seeking the formation of a judicial commission to probe into riots following Imran’s arrest.
