The police in Lahore on Thursday booked Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf, and 400 others on the charges of murder and terrorism following a clash with police that left one activist dead and several others injured.

According to PTI, this is the 80th case the coalition government led by the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) has brought against the former Prime Minister Khan during its 11 months in power.

Violence broke out during yesterday’s Imran Khan election rally in Lahore, killing PTI activist Ali Bilal and injuring over a dozen others while the police detained 100 PTI members.

According to the FIR, 11 police officers were hurt when rocks were thrown at them during the clash between police and PTI workers.

Current opposition leader and former premier Khan were ousted in a no-confidence vote in Parliament in April of last year. In addition to pushing for early parliamentary elections, he has contended that his expulsion was illegal.

Khan’s petitions have been turned down by Shahbaz Sharif’s administration, which asserts that the general election will occur as scheduled later this year.

Moreover, in a recent decree, Pakistan’s media regulator has banned TV channels from broadcasting speeches and news conferences by Imran Kahn, accusing him of attacking the state’s institutions and promoting hatred.

The authorities said that Khan was inciting hate speech by making offensive remarks about government leaders and institutions, which is against the law and is likely to cause public unrest.
