Pakistan's former prime minister Imran Khan said on Sunday he will take legal action against police for breaking into his house on Saturday.

Khan also announced plans to hold a public rally on Wednesday in Lahore.

Police entered Khan’s property and clashed with supporters after Khan arrived in Islamabad for the court appearance to address charges of unlawfully selling state gifts given to him by foreign dignitaries while in office. Khan says he followed legal procedures in acquiring the gifts.

Khan is facing a spate of legal challenges, including one that prompted the failed attempt to arrest him on Tuesday.

Punjab Information Minister Amir Mir told Reuters that police had arrived outside Khan's house to collect evidence about attacks on police and people wanted in various cases.

Khan, who was shot and wounded while campaigning in November, said in an interview the threat to his life is greater than before and asserted - without providing evidence - that his political opponents and the military want to block him from standing in elections later this year.
