Lahore: A court in Lahore granted bail to two of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf chief Imran Khan’s nephews on Thursday, a day after an FIR was registered against them at the Lahore Racecourse Police Station.
According to reports, the accused, Azeem and Abdullah were arrested after they allegedly abused, assaulted and threatened a traffic warden, who stopped them from violating traffic rules.
Duty Police Officer (DPO) said that an FIR was lodged against the accused after they started misbehaving with a traffic warden Shakeel who stopped the two for not wearing seatbelts while driving on the Canal Road in Lahore.

He said that the complainant, warden Shakeel, alleged that despite wearing seatbelt on his request, Azeem and Abdulllah started misbehaving with him, abused him and later manhandled him as well.
Shakeel then called in other wardens in the area, who then brought the two men to the Racecourse Police Station where the accused Azeem and Abdullah, residents of Zaman Park – the same locality where the PTI chairman lives – told the station police that “Imran Khan is their maternal uncle”.
The DPO said at the same time the accused changed their statement, claiming that “Imran Khan is their paternal uncle”.
