Imran Khan faces arrest after he was booked in a terror case amid the controversy over his remarks at a rally.

Former Pakistan prime minister Imran Khan - who continues to be in headlines months after his government collapsed - on Friday made another remark that drew attention. The cricketer-politician has been booked in a terror case over his remarks against a female judge last week.

“I am very dangerous,” Khan told reporters on Friday, Pak-based The News International reported, a day after he was given a week’s relief in the form of a pre-arrest bail from a court in Islamabad. This was the second time in a week that the former premier had approached the court for interim bail.

Alleging that the government was trying “to arrest the head of the largest party” in the country, he further said that Pakistan was being mocked. Claiming that the country is facing “lawlessness”, Khan further said: “There is no law here and any charges can be brought against anyone. They are looking for technical knockouts. Just to save themselves, they are making a mockery of the country.”

Imran Khan faces arrest in the terror case over his comments at a rally last week that was called over the arrest of PTI leader Shahbaz Gill. Khan and his party leaders have been alleging that Gill has been tortured in custody.

At the rally, however, Khan upped the ante against the Shahbaz Sharif government, and made comments against a female judge linked to the case, and even the Election Commission. In response, media watchdog - Pakistan Electronic Media Regulatory Authority - banned his live speeches on satellite TV channels.
