His supporters have been involved in clashes with the authorities, as they attempt to protect him and prevent his arrest.
Khan has filed appeals with the Lahore and Islamabad High Courts to stop the arrest warrants from being executed.
Around a hundred of his supporters have barricaded his home to prevent him being taken into custody, while he himself is set to attend court in Lahore to "support his plea against his arrest warrant and police action.".
