Khan was arrested on Tuesday by the Rangers - becoming the seventh former prime minister to be arrested in the country - on the orders of the National Accountability Bureau (NAB), an autonomous anti-graft agency, in relation to the corruption case.

He was then moved to the NAB office in the garrison town of Rawalpindi for questioning.

Subsequently, on the same day, IHC Chief Justice Aamer Farooq reprimanded the law enforcers for detaining the PTI chief from the court premises and reserved the verdict on the legality of the arrest. Hours later, the IHC CJ declared the arrest legal.

In the alleged audio conversation that surfaced online earlier today, the PTI chief asked Cheema to direct Senator Azam Swati to challenge his arrest in the Supreme Court.

The PTI leader also informed the party chief that his legal team was present in the IHC and it would not leave until he was produced in the court.
