ISLAMABAD: Interior Minister Sheikh Rasheed Ahmad on Sunday said that Imran Khan could be arrested and democracy could be under threat after the success of a no-trust motion against the prime minister, ARY NEWS reported.
Speaking to media, Sheikh Rasheed said that the opposition could not match the popularity of Imran Khan and there could be arrests and fights on roads to stop him from reaching out to public.
