Islamabad: Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) chief Imran Khan Monday vowed that a "storm" would be unleashed to "free the country from its oppressive rulers" after a party activist was killed in Faisalabad ahead of his call for a shutdown of the city, a Pakistani daily reported.

"We will not let Haq Nawaz's sacrifice go to waste," Imran Khan said referring to the PTI worker's killing in clashes between supporters of the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) and his party, The Dawn reported.

"I will go to Lahore, Karachi. Nawaz Sharif, you have always used the police to oppress the people. We will free this country from these oppressive rulers," he said in an address to PTI supporters Monday evening.

Police registered a case against 10 PML-N supporters for their alleged involvement in the PTI activist's killing.

Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif has sought a report from regional police officers about the incident, the state-run Associetd Press of Pakistan quoted sources in the chief minister's secretariat as saying.

Imran Khan had earlier announced plans to shut down major cities in Pakistan and subsequently the whole country in protest against alleged rigging in the 2013 general election.

He had urged traders to keep their businesses shut in Faisalabad Dec 8, requesting citizens to sacrifice "one day to liberate themselves".

However, violent clashes erupted between supporters of the PTI and PML-N in which the PTI activist lost his life.
