LAHORE: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf Chairman Imran Khan has not paid the property tax on his Zaman Park residence.
Commencing his civil disobedience movement against the Nawaz-led government around two months ago, Imran had refused to pay his electricity bills and other taxes. To record his protest against inflated electricity bills, the PTI supremo had burnt his electricity bills at the Islamabad sit-in last month.
