Imran Khan used common citizens as human shields against state institutions: Saad

Railways Minister Khawaja Saad Rafique has said that the courts summoned PTI Chairman Imran Khan several times but he did not obey the court orders.

Addressing a press conference in Lahore on Friday, the Minister said Imran Khan used common citizens as human shields against the state institutions and he promoted pressure group politics in the country.

He said the action is being taken against the PTI chairman in accordance with law and the non-bailable arrest warrants were issued because he failed to appear before the courts.

He said the PML-N fought for supremacy of the constitution.

Khawaja Saad Rafique said Gilgit-Baltistan police played an illegal role in Lahore.
