On Friday, the Balochistan High Court (BHC) suspended an arrest warrant issued by a local court in Quetta for Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan for two weeks.
After filing a plea on behalf of the PTI chief, Iqbal Shah of the Insaf Lawyers Forum (ISF) appeared before Justice Zaheer-Ud-Din Kakar of the BHC, who then suspended the warrant.
During the hearing, the plea presented an argument that the offence was not committed in the jurisdiction of Bijli Police Station, where the case had been registered, and requested the court to dismiss the FIR.

A Quetta police team had arrived in Lahore to arrest Imran Khan as per the court order, but the suspension of the warrant halted the arrest for the next two weeks.
