Now, the former cricketer has come forward with shocking claims on what happened to him after he was arrested which include things like not being allowed to use a washroom for 24 hours, a lethal injection and more.

What Is Imran Khan Claiming?

According to reports during a hearing in the court, Imran Khan claims that “I have not been to the washroom in 24 hours,” and that “they give [you] an injection, and [you] slowly die.”

Further stated his fear of facing the same fate as Maqsood ‘Chaprasi’, a key witness in a money laundering case against prime minister Shehbaz Sharif who died last year.

Khan who is currently spending eight days in National Accountability Bureau’s (NAB) custody had a meeting with his lawyers on Wednesday where he reportedly revealed what was happening to him. As per the lawyers, it is believed that there might be a conspiracy to kill the former prime minister in prison.
