Protests had broken out across Pakistan after Imran Khan had been taken into custody from the Islamabad High Court. The protests had turned violent in many places, including in Lahore where the Corps Commander’s residence had been attacked and ransacked by protestors.

Imran Khan has since claimed that the attack had been orchestrated to frame his party, while the government says the plan had been made in advance.
