LAHORE: The nephew of Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan and his friend were arrested in Lahore's Race Course area on Wednesday when they allegedly hurled abuses at a traffic warden who stopped them for violating traffic rules.

Police said the accused Azeem and his friend Abdullah were stopped by traffic warden Shakeel Ahmed for violating traffic rules.

At this point, Azeem and his friend allegedly misbehaved with the police official who then brought the two men to Race Course Station where a case was registered against the two accused.

The case was registered against Imran Khan's nephew and his friend for "threatening to kill" and "obstructing the job" of a government official.
