Among them was the notification for the NA-53 seat in Islamabad, another seat that Khan contested against PML-N leader and former prime minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi.

Chaudhry said that Indian High Commissioner Ajay Bisaria presented a bat signed by his country's cricket team and its captain to Imran.

After the Indian diplomat congratulated Khan, his host "expressed his grave concerns on the human rights violations in the occupied Kashmir".

Shortly after Modi's conversation with Khan on phone, speculations were rife that the latter would invite the Indian PM for his swearing-in. The statement had also added that India welcomed that the fact that the "people of Pakistan have reposed their faith in democracy through general elections", adding that New Delhi hoped the newly elected government would work constructively to build a safe, stable, secure and developed South Asia, free of terrorism and violence.

A four-member bench headed by the chief election commissioner Muhammad Raza Khan heard the case against Imran Khan, the chairman of the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf or PTI after the Election Commission of Pakistan took notice of the photos of him stamping the ballot paper in full public glare in the NA-53 Islamabad constituency.

Khan also hoped for India's participation in the SAARC summit, scheduled to be held in Islamabad.
