Lawyer Gohar said, “Rangers burst through the glass and entered the diary branch. Before ransacking the IHC office, Rangers members also destroyed the front gate.”
A Reuters witness said shortly after Imran entered the gate of the IHC, contingents of paramilitary forces and armored personnel carriers entered after him.
The gate was blocked by the armored vehicles while the ex-PM was whisked away shortly after under heavy security, the witness added.
PTI senior leader Fawad Chaudhry also said that the IHC was occupied by Rangers, “lawyers were being subjected to torture” and Imran’s car was surrounded.
