Pakistan police file terrorism charges against Imran Khan22nd August 2022
Pakistan’s police filed terrorism charges against Imran Khan on Monday, as the former prime minister held mass rallies seeking a return to office.
The charges followed a speech Mr Khan gave in Islamabad on Saturday, in which he vowed to sue police officers and a female judge, and alleged a close aide had been tortured after his arrest, AP reported.
Mr Khan appeared to be free and had not immediately addressed the charge sheet being lodged against him.
