Led by a superintendent police, the team comprised six inspectors. The PTI chairman, however, declined to respond to the queries of the police team and insisted on having his attorneys present during the interrogation process.
Before this, Gujranwala police had also interrogated the former prime minister in connection with the same case.
According to sources, in the past 24 hours, five teams—from Rawalpindi, Faisalabad, Kasur, Gujranwala and Mianwali—have reached Adiala Jail for their respective investigations into rioting.
Violent protests broke out across the country after the paramilitary Rangers whisked away Imran Khan from inside the Islamabad High Court in connection with a corruption case.
Protestors, allegedly PTI leaders, workers and sympathizers attacked state and military properties and installations across the country soon after the arrest.
Later, the state machinery started a massive crackdown against the PTI. As the crackdown intensified, the former ruling party started decimating like a house of cards with its key leaders and lawmakers addressing hurriedly called press conferences to dissociate themselves from the party and the incidents.
