LAHORE: In a key development, the Islamabad High Court (IHC) on Monday granted interim bail to Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan in seven cases and stopped police from arresting the former prime minister.
An IHC bench comprising Chief Justice Aamer Farooq and Justice Miangul Hassan Aurangzeb heard the case after the PTI chief arrived in Islamabad from Lahore to get a pre-arrest bail in the cases registered against him in the federal capital.
Speaking to the court, Imran Khan said that the country was going through an unprecedented situation and that his life was in danger.
Earlier in the day, Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chairman and former prime minister Imran Khan arrived at the Islamabad High Court (IHC) to seek protective bail in seven terrorism cases including vandalism in the judicial complex. Multiple cases were registered against the former prime minister at Islamabad’s Ramna, CTD and Golra police stations.
A video on PTI’s official Twitter showed the PTI chairman arriving at the court premises with a huge contingent of Islamabad police surrounding his vehicles. PTI leaders Murad Saeed, Musarrat Cheema and others accompanied Imran Khan.
