LAHORE: Pakistan Tehrik-i-Insaf (PTI) chief Imran Khan has urged the British High Commissioner Adam Thompson to take notice of comments made by Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) chief Altaf Hussain, DawnNews reported.

The British High Commissioner had arrived at Shaukat Khanum Memorial Hospital to visit the PTI chief, who is recovering from an injury suffered during his election campaign.

Imran Khan reportedly told Thompson that Altaf Hussain's statements were against British law and that action should be taken against it.

He also told the British High Commissioner that the UK government should issue a warning to the MQM chief.

The London Metropolitan police has already launched an investigation against MQM chief Altaf Hussain after complaints by hundreds of British and Pakistani citizens.
