The petitioner alleged that Khan received almost $3 million in foreign funds that were collected through two offshore companies.

In August, the ECP had issued a second show-cause notice to Imran Khan after he failed to reply to the earlier notice regarding the contempt of court proceedings against him.

The PTI rejected the electoral body's order to arrest their party chief, terming the move "illegal". Issuing the warrant the ECP directed that Khan should "be arrested and brought for the next hearing of the case". However, the court suspended the warrant following a petition from PTI.

Khan and ex-premier Nawaz Sharif have been at loggerhead for years, especially after the Panama Papers scandal in April last year. He further argued that the high court is going to hear a petition on the ECP's powers in connection with contempt of court hearings, DAWN reported. "We will challenge the decision in court and will also look into the matter whether this is contempt of the IHC's decision or not", Babar Awan, PTI's member and lawyer said.
