Toshakhana case: IHC suspends arrest warrants, orders Imran Khan to appear in court on March 13

ISLAMABAD: Islamabad High Court today suspended arrest warrants and ordered Imran Khan to appear in the district and sessions court on March 13 in connection with the Toshakhana case.

The IHC asked the government to ensure foolproof security in the court. Earlier, the court reserved its verdict in this matter.

The district and sessions judge issued non-bailable arrest warrants for Imran Khan last week.

The former prime minister and PTI chief Imran Khan today challenged his non-bailable arrest warrants in the Toshakhana case in the Islamabad High Court. Khan’s lawyer filed a plea in the court challenging arrest warrants.

Imran Khan approached the IHC a day after the district and sessions judge in Islamabad upheld the arrest warrant on Monday.

Former PM and PTI chairman Imran Khan again did not appear in the district and sessions court in Islamabad today. Resultantly, judge Zafar Iqbal rejected the plea and upheld the arrest warrants.

Earlier, an Additional District and Sessions Judge issued non-bailable arrest warrants for former prime minister Imran Khan in the Toshakhana reference case.

On Tuesday, Judge Zafar Iqbal issued a non-bailable warrant at a time when Imran Khan was in the Islamabad High Court to appear in pre-arrest bail in this case.
