    Court reserves verdict on Imran Khan’s plea for annulling arrest warrants in Toshakhana cases

    ISLAMABAD – A sessions court on Monday(March-06) reserved the verdict on PTI Chief Imran Khan’s plea seeking annulment of the non-bailable arrest warrants issued for him against his failure to appear before the court in the Toshakhana case.

    Imran’s lawyers Qaisar Imam, Barrister Gohar, & Ali Bukhari had filed the plea in court.

    Mr Imam demanded the annulment of the warrants arguing that the law had barred the issuance of arrest warrants to some extent if the plea had been filed as a private complaint. Additional Sessions judge Zafar Iqbal remarked that Imran Khan’s lawyers had apprised the court the day the warrants were issued for him that Khan would not appear before the court.

    The case is set to proceed in the court on Tuesday(March-07).

    The judeg had, earlier, issued arrest warrants for Imran after he failed to appear before the court despite the court’s multiple orders directing him to appear to penalise him.

    The capital police subsequently reached Imran’s residence in Zaman Park on Sunday(March-05) but he reportedly “dodged” them. A few hours later, Imran Khan, while addressing the party workers, demanded the public hearing of the case.

    Earlier, the Pakistan Tahreek-e-Insaf approached the SC for the appearance of the Paistan Tahreek-e-Insaf chairman Imran Khan in the judicial proceedings via video link.

    The letter, written to the apex court, mentioned there were security lapses in the PTI’s chief Khan recent appearance in the IHC & the cases against him were a plot to make him vulnerable to an attack. Hence, it was pleaded to allow the appearance via video link in the courts.

    On the other hand, the LHC registrar’s office, earlier, raised an objection to petitions filed by Imran Khan seeking protective bail in 2 cases registered at the Ramna police station(RPS) in Islamabad.

    The registrar said the copies of the protective bails secured by Pakistan Tahreeek-e-Insaf leaders Mian Aslam Iqbal & Farrukh Habib in the same cases were not attached to the petitions filed by Imran Khan, who faces arrest after a court in Islamabad issued his non-bailable arrest warrants for no-show up in cases.
