Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) chief Imran Khan has said that he would follow the orders of the court and go to jail, a media report said .

“According to the decision of the anti-terrorism court (ATC), I am a dangerous man. It also declared me a proclaimed offender, which is why I should go to jail as per the decision of the court,” Khan said Friday while addressing participants at the sit-in at Islamabad’s D-Chowk.

On Wednesday, the ATC had issued non-bailable warrants against Imran Khan, Pakistan Awami Tehreek (PAT) leader Tahirul Qadri and other PTI and PAT leaders, Dawn online reported.

Imran Khan said that it was difficult to understand the court’s decision to declare PTI leaders proclaimed offenders, including Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Chief Minister Pervez Khattak.

“Before leaving D-Chowk, I had announced that PTI workers would not damage public property at any cost and my speech is on record,” he said.

He said Adeel, a PTI supporter, was in Adiala Jail for the last 27 days allegedly for attacking the Pakistan Television (PTV) headquarters in Islamabad.

“Due to a weak judicial system, no one is ready to issue arrest warrant for the ‘corrupt’ rulers,” he added.
