LAHORE: An FIR has been registered against two of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf chief Imran Khan’s nephews at the Lahore Racecourse Police Station when they allegedly abused, assaulted and threatened a traffic warden, who stopped them from violating traffic rules on Wednesday.
“The accused, Azeem and Abdullah, were stopped by traffic warden Shakeel for not wearing seatbelts while driving on the Canal Road, upon which they started squabbling with the warden,” Duty Police Officer (DPO) told The Express Tribune.

He said that the complainant, warden Shakeel, alleged that despite wearing seatbelt on his request, Azeem and Abdulllah started misbehaving with him, abused him and later manhandled him as well.
Shakeel then called in other wardens in the area, who then brought the two men to the Racecourse Police Station where the accused Azeem and Abdullah, residents of Zaman Park – the same locality where the PTI chairman lives – told the station police that “Imran Khan is their maternal uncle”.
