The standoff between Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) supporters and police continues, as authorities attempt to arrest former Prime Minister Imran Khan.

PTI workers put up a strong resistance against the authorities at Zaman park, Khan’s resistance in Lahore.

The Punjab government sent in the Rangers Wednesday morning after the Islamabad and Lahore police failed to arrest PTI Chief Imran Khan in an over 18-hour standoff a day earlier.

Here are a few pictures from the event so far:

Several PTI workers have been arrested near the Zaman Park residence of Imran Khan in Lahore as the police and Rangers launched a fresh push against them. Rangers used rubber bullets against the PTI protesters as they moved in at around 12pm, nearly 22 hours since the police first arrived to arrest Imran Khan.
