Defence Minister Khawaja Asif schooled on Sunday Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan, saying the latter should borrow "courage" from Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) supremo Nawaz Sharif.

Taking to Twitter, Mr Asif expressed his thoughts in connection with the potential arrest of Mr Khan, saying, "Imran is asking his workers to court arrest. But he himself escaped from getting arrested."
