Pakistan police seize Khan at rally

Former cricket star-turned-politician Imran Khan surfaced at a student demonstration against emergency rule on Wednesday only to be promptly detained by police. Some 200 students cheered wildly and lifted Khan into the air when he got out of a car on a university campus in the eastern city of Lahore.

“Then some people came and took him away. He was on my shoulders when they grabbed him,” Faisal Naim, a student said.

Naim said he couldn’t identify the men in plain-clothes who hustled Khan into a nearby building.

Imran Khan gave a series of media interviews at secret locations in Lahore before deciding to join students protesting against Musharraf’s assumption of emergency powers at the University of Punjab. Khan was the only one of Musharraf’s most outspoken critics not in detention or exile.
