Imran Khan seeks bail
ISLAMABAD: Imran Khan, the PTI Chairman, today filed a bail application with the Islamabad High Court in the cipher case. He urged the court to grant him bail in this case.
Khan’s lawyer, Barrister Salman Safdar, submitted the bail application to the IHC.
On September 14, the special court of the Official Secrets Act dismissed the bail requests of the PTI chief and Vice Chairman Shah Mahmood Qureshi.
The bail application contends that the prosecution maliciously initiated the case. Petitioner asserted that the special court overlooked the prosecution’s irregularities while rejecting the bail.
Furthermore, it claims that the PTI chairman was falsely implicated in a fabricated case.
On September 14, the special court turned down the post-arrest bail applications of PTI Chairman and Vice Chairman in the cipher case.
Judge Abul Hasanat Zulqernain delivered his reserved verdict after the concerned parties completed their arguments.
IHC rejects IK’s plea to bar authorities from arresting him
Meanwhile, the Islamabad High Court (IHC) has rejected a plea to instruct authorities against arresting PTI leader Imran Khan in any pending cases. The IHC bench explained that it is unwilling to establish such a precedent.
Imran Khan seeks bail from the IHC and filed a petition today.
A division bench of the high court led by Chief Justice Aamer Farooq and including Justice Tariq Mehmood Jahangiri heard Imran Khan’s petition. Khan challenged the revocation of his pre-arrest bail in nine separate cases, including those filed against him following the May 9 disturbances.
