LAHORE, March 18 (Reuters) – Pakistani police on Saturday entered the property in Lahore of former Prime Minister Imran Khan, officials from his political party said, as he was appearing in court in the capital Islamabad.

The move followed days of standoff and intense clashes between police and his supporters around the property, where police had attempted to arrest Khan on Tuesday.

Khan said in a Tweet that his wife was at the property. He was appearing in court after expressing fear of arrest.
