More than 20 Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) workers were detained on Saturday despite Lahore High Court (LHC) orders not to take any action in Zaman Park.
The police operation was started to clear the area of camps set up by the party close to his home once Imran Khan went to Islamabad to attend a court hearing. The law enforcement agency warned the party supporters to disperse or face the consequences as it announced over the loudspeakers the imposition of Section 144.
Imran’s attorney uploaded a video of a police operation in the residence of the former prime minister.

Following an agreement between the administration and the PTI on the search at Zaman Park, a sizable police contingent was stationed nearby.
Both parties finalized the details of the agreements which were then presented to the Lahore High Court (LHC) including the conducting of rallies, the security of the PTI leader, and other legal issues.
According to the specifics, the PTI would work with the government to put the arrest and search warrants into effect.
Shibli Faraz and Ali Muhammad Khan have been named by the PTI as focal members, and SSP Imran Kishwar will speak for the police.
The PTI will work with the police to conduct an inquiry into cases involving conflicts that took place on March 14 and 15.
