The former Pakistan cricket captain was taken from the rally site just outside the town of Gujranwala to receive treatment in Lahore, around a two-and-a-half-hour drive away.
Khan is in stable condition and undergoing surgery, according to Senator Fawad Chaudhry, a senior PTI politician, and Khan’s former information minister.

Khan was on the seventh day of a nationwide rally tour calling for elections to be brought forward from August next year.
Protests broke out across Pakistan in support of Khan, including in the capital Islamabad as well as in Peshawar, where approximately 800 protesters gathered, blocking roads for around two hours while holding party flags and chanting slogans against the army and the federal government.
