Canada Global (Web News) An application for the issuance of an arrest warrant for PTI Chairman Imran Khan in the matter of the intimidating the woman judge was denied by a district and sessions court in the nation’s capital.
The PTI leader, through his attorney Naeem Panjohtha, submitted a petition during the hearing asking to be excused from appearing due to health reasons. According to his attorney, physicians had advised against Mr. Khan travelling while he is still recovering from his gunshot wounds.
The PTI leader has presented the medical papers from his own facility, which treats cancer-related diseases, the prosecutor Rizwan Abbasi claimed in opposition to the exemption request. He explained that Imran Khan’s leg was only swollen and said he was welcome to step outside the court to sign in.
His request was for the court to revoke Imran Khan’s bail and issue an arrest order for him.
The case was postponed until March 9 after the court rejected the defendant’s argument.
The PTI chairman attacked both the police and the judiciary in August of last year over Shahbaz Gill’s alleged torture while in custody and declared that his party would file a lawsuit against Inspector General of Police (IGP) Dr. Akbar Nasir Khan, the DIG, and additional sessions judge Zeba Chaudhry.
Mr. Khan was charged after his remarks under several provisions of the Pakistan Penal Code (PPC) and the Anti-Terrorism Act (ATA). Later, the Islamabad High Court (IHC) dismissed the case’s allegations of terrorism against him. Additionally, it accepted his apologies in the issue of court contempt.
