(PTI) Pakistan’s ex-prime Minister Imran Khan walked before to the Islamabad High Court on Monday to seek pre-arrest bail, one day after being booked in accordance with the Anti-Terrorism Act for threatening police as well as the judiciary and other state institutions during the Islamabad rallies on Saturday.
The petition submitted by his attorneys Babar Awan and Faisal Chaudhry declared that Khan was the target of his ruling PDM (Pakistan Democratic Movement) for his fearless critique as well as his the extremely bold and direct stand against corrupt politicians and corruption according to the Dawn newspaper stated.
In order to accomplish this devious plan, performing in a very naive and reckless way, a false and unfounded complaint has been made against him by Islamabad Capital Territory (ICT) police on behalf of the government in power and the incumbent government, according to.
The plea also claimed that the government was able to go beyond the limits to detain Imran with false allegations and was determined to weed out the petitioner’s party and the one he was with at any cost .
A case against Khan was filed by the Margalla Police Station of Islamabad.
The FIR states the FIR reads that Khan in his remarks was said to have “terrorised and threatened top police officials and a respected female additional sessions judge” with the goal of stopping them from carrying out their duties and refrain from taking any legal action against anyone associated with the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf party (PTI).
The report states that Khan’s speech caused fear and uncertainty to the police, judges and entire nation.
In his statement, Khan had threatened to make charges against top police officials and a female magistrate Election Commission of Pakistan and opposition parties for the treatment he dealt out to his adviser Shahbaz Gill, who was detained last week in connection with charges of sedition.
