Former Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan has been taken into custody by paramilitary force, local GEO TV reported on Tuesday.

Khan was taken into custody from a court premises in Islamabad in a corruption case, the broadcaster reported.

“Imran Khan’s car has been surrounded,” Khan’s aide Fawad Chaudhry said without confirming his arrest.

Information Minister Marriyum Aurangzeb did not immediately respond to a Reuters request seeking confirmation of the report.
