Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) has written a letter to Chief Justice of Pakistan (CJP) Umar Ata Bandial asking him to take suo motu notice on the government's "illegal" actions against party chief Imran Khan, reported 24NewsHD TV channel.
In the letter sent to the CJP on Saturday, PTI Secretary General Asad Umar said the Islamabad High Court (IHC) had barred law-enforcers from arresting Imran Khan in the Toshakhana case and the Lahore High Court prohibited his arrest in nine cases.
The PTI leader further stated that as Imran Khan was en route to Islamabad today to appear before a trial court, the Punjab Police stormed his Zaman Park residence in Lahore, while the "doors and walls have been razed to the ground".
The police have arrested around 40 PTI workers — four days after they battled at the same place when the police had arrived to arrest the former prime minister in the Toshakhana case.
In the prevailing circumstances, Umar told the CJP that he has "firm reasons" to believe that the state in order to take revenge on the PTI chief is "hell-bent to compromise the liberty of Imran Khan in the most unlawful manner".
"And it has been reiterated by Imran Khan time and again his life is at stake and he may be taken out in a bid to take his life," the former minister wrote.
