Imran Khan: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) President Imran Khan may be arrested by the Islamabad Police today. The police will go to Zaman Park, the residence of former Prime Minister Imran Khan, to arrest him following instructions from Islamabad courts.
Explain that a sessions court in Islamabad has issued a non-bailable arrest warrant against Imran Khan for threatening a woman judge.
According to a Geo News report, Khan was booked for threatening judicial magistrate Jeba Chowdhary, police officers and the judiciary at a rally at F-9 Park on August 20.
Imran Khan has requested for virtual muscle
Let us inform that Civil Judge Rana Mujahid Rahim issued a three-page reserved judgment and issued a non-bailable arrest warrant for repeated non-appearance of Imran Khan.
The former prime minister has filed a petition for exemption from physically appearing before the judge instead of attending the hearing, Geo News reported. Imran Khan has requested a virtual appearance through a petition.
Sources said the Islamabad police would contact Imran Khan’s chief security officer before leaving for Zaman Park. Explain that two courts have issued non-bailable arrest warrants of Khan in different cases. In both the cases, even after being called repeatedly, they have not reached the court for appearance.
Police had reached Zaman Park earlier also for arrest
The capital police had also reached Lahore on March 5 in connection with the Toshakhana case, but had returned empty-handed after being told that Imran Khan was not at his Zaman Park residence.
