Khan, who was ousted as prime minister in April but remains head of the opposition Tehreek-e-Insaf party, was hit with terrorism charges in August after he gave a speech in which he threatened to sue police officials and a judge, alleging that they had tortured a close aide.

Party members vowed to resist any attempt to arrest Khan, the report said.
