GERMANY (Web Desk) : After the arrest of former prime minister and Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf Chairman Imran Khan, the United States, the United Kingdom, Canada and the European Union have issued a travel advisory.

According to foreign media, the travel advisory stated that citizens should avoid unnecessary travelling in Azad Kashmir, Balochistan and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa.

In this regard, the Canadian High Commission says that there is a threat of terrorism, unrest and kidnapping, so foreign nationals should be careful while in western style restaurants and shopping centres.

A travel advisory issued by the Canadian High Commission stated that security forces were on high alert in Islamabad, Rawalpindi, Lahore and Karachi. Citizens should avoid going to areas where demonstrations were taking place, it added.

It should be noted that on Tuesday, the NAB arrested former prime minister Imran Khan on the Islamabad High Court premises in the Al-Qadir Trust case, after which PTI workers protested in various cities across the country.
