Pakistan police raid house of PM Khan’s nephew over hospital riots

Lahore: Pakistan police raided the house of Prime Minister Imran Khan’s nephew on Saturday in eastern Lahore, after a video emerged showing him taking part in deadly hospital riots days earlier.
Three patients died after roughly 200 lawyers stormed Punjab Heart Institute hospital in the city on Wednesday, vandalising property and setting ablaze a police van after a dispute with doctors. TV channels ran footage showing Khan’s nephew Hassan Niazi, a lawyer, at the hospital and watching as a police vehicle was set on fire. “He will be arrested at any cost... all are equal in the eye of law, ” said Punjab’s Minister for Information Fayyaz ul Hassan Chohan.
