PTI leader Moonis Elahi, who is the son of Pervez Elahi, said that he will stay with the party. He tweeted, "A series of crackdowns began in January and at that time, my father told me that even if he is arrested, we must stand with Imran Khan."
"Three days ago, my parents reiterated the same thing. Now it is being said that my father has been arrested in false cases," he said.
"We are with PTI and will remain with the party," he asserted.
Pakistan, a nation which was already facing economic crisis, now faces political turmoil after violent protests erupted when Imran Khan was arrested by paramilitary Rangers in Islamabad.
His party workers vandalised over 20 military installations and government buildings, including the Lahore Corps Commander House, Mianwali airbase and the ISI building in Faisalabad.
The Army headquarters (GHQ) in Rawalpindi was also attacked by the mob for the first time. Khan was later released on bail.
Law enforcement agencies have arrested over 10,000 workers of Khan"s Pakistan party across Pakistan, 4,000 of them from Punjab province.
Pervez Elahi was a close aide to military dictator General Pervez Musharraf. He was appointed as the president of the PTI party in March this year, after he quit his former party — the Pakistan Muslim League-Quaid (PML-Q).
The court order noted, "The pre-arrest bail of the accused was dismissed due to non-prosecution vide order dated May 25 and he is not appearing before the court and also not joining the investigation."
"In view of the request of the IO, let non-bailable arrest warrants of accused Chaudhry Pervaiz Elahi be issued for June 2, 2023," it added.
