A video showing the former prime minister’s dramatic arrest went viral on social media earlier in the day. A large number of paramilitary personnel grabbed Mr Khan and whisked him away to an armoured vehicle.

The video uploaded by PTI’s Twitter handles was widely shared along with calls to supporters to come out in the streets and protest the leader’s arrest.

Imran Khan was arrested in the Qadir Trust case which concerns allegations that Bahria Town allotted land worth millions to Al-Qadir Trust, owned by Mr Khan and his wife, the Islamabad police said.
