In a video message released on Sunday, Khan, who is under treatment at the Shaukat Khanum hospital in Lahore, said he would himself lead the protests in Karachi.

"I regret that I would not be able to join the protest demonstrations in Karachi right now, but hopefully I will be rubbing shoulders with you as soon as doctors discharge me from the hospital", he said.

Khan announced his party workers would start protests from Monday against the killing of Zahra Shahid Hussain, the vice president of the Pakistan Tehrik-e-Insaf's Sindh chapter, who was gunned down outside her residence on Saturday.
