The National Accountability Bureau said in a statement Abbasi had been arrested in a case that was opened previous year over a liquefied natural gas (LNG) terminal project. The institution of NAB has become Imran Khan's puppet.

Fazl said so while holding a press conference in Peshawar.

His arrest has drawn a furious response from opposition parties that accuse the government of trying to silence its opponents.

A National Accountability Bureau team intercepted Mr. Abbasi's auto at Thokar Niaz Baig in Lahore and arrested him.

Demanding Abbasi's release, Bilawal said that "selective accountability by the selected government" will never be accepted despite using "illegal and unconstitutional tools" against the Opposition. "Opposition can not be intimidated through such fascist actions", he said.

It is reported that Pakistan Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi and Pakistan Army chief General Qamar Javed Bajwa would be accompanying Khan to the US.

Khan came to power in 2018 accusing Abbasi and his predecessor Nawaz Sharif, of large-scale corruption and mismanagement of Pakistan's economy.
