Imran Khan, the former Prime Minister of Pakistan, is reportedly preparing a plan to counter the threats of arrest from the country’s authorities. The move comes after the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) issued an arrest warrant against Khan in a case related to the misuse of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa government’s helicopters.

Khan’s party, Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI), has called the case politically motivated and accused the NAB of bias. The party claims that the helicopter rides were taken for official government business and that Khan had not violated any rules.

However, the NAB has argued that Khan had used the helicopters for personal purposes, including attending a wedding ceremony. The case has been ongoing for several years, and the arrest warrant was issued after Khan failed to appear before the accountability court.

In response, Khan has reportedly held several meetings with his legal team to prepare a plan to counter the threats of arrest. The PTI has also called for protests across the country against what they call the victimization of their leader.

Khan, who served as the Prime Minister of Pakistan from 2018 to 2021, has been a prominent figure in the country’s politics for decades. He led the PTI to victory in the 2018 general elections, promising to eradicate corruption and improve the economy.

However, his government has faced criticism for failing to deliver on its promises and for its handling of the COVID-19 pandemic. The looming arrest threats against Khan could further destabilize the country’s political landscape, which is already facing significant challenges.
