Imran Khan’s arrest had sparked intense political chaos in Pakistan. Clashes took place between protestors and the police authorities. State and military installations were also attacked.

In an unprecedented show of vandalism, protestors had attacked and caused damage to the historic Corps’ Commander’s House — originally known as Jinnah House and which once served as the residence of the founding father of the nation, Quaid-e-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah — hours after Imran Khan’s arrest.

Pictures and videos from the historic building showed that all the rooms, halls, drawing rooms, living rooms, walls, curtains, doors, wooden ceilings, and even the floor had been burnt by the protestors.

An FIR has been registered against leaders and activists of the PTI for attacking the historic Jinnah House in Lahore’s Cantonment area. The caretaker Chief Minister of Punjab also established a Joint Interrogation Team (JIT) to investigate the vandalism and arson in Jinnah House.

The Lahore police has also arrested 340 suspects who allegedly attacked the Corps Commander House (Jinnah House) in Lahore Cantt, looted valuables, misbehaved with the senior officer’s family members, and set the house on fire.
