At least 30-40 terrorists" have allegedly taken refuge at former Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan's residence in Lahore, according to the local media reports. The interim Punjab government in Pakistan has given a 24-hour deadline to the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI), Imran Khan's party, to hand over the "terrorists" to the police. The “terrorists” have taken refuge at the residence of Imran Khan at Zaman Park in Lahore.

Addressing a press conference, caretaker minister Amir Mir said, “PTI should hand over these terrorists or the law will take its course. The intelligence report that has come is very alarming.” The minister added that the presence of terrorists at Imran Khan's Zaman Park residence was confirmed by credible intelligence.

The intelligence agencies have been able to confirm the presence of 30-40 “terrorists” inside Imran Khan's residence in Zaman Park through geo-fencing.

The caretaker minister of Punjab province in Pakistan has also alleged that the “PTI leadership had planned the attack before the arrest [of Imran Khan].”

The minister also claimed the attacks on military installations were carried out during May 9 violent protests under a set plan. “Several arsonists were in touch with people inside Zaman Park during the attack on the Corps Commander House. They will be made an example so that no one will carry out such an act in the future,” he said.

Imran Khan's arrest inside the Islamabad High Court by the paramilitary troops, on the directives of the National Accountability Bureau (NAB), sparked clashes between his supporters and security forces that left at least eight people dead.

Scores were arrested, including Imran Khan's close aides and political associates.
