Imran Khan’s arrest warrant is suspended for two weeks by BHC

Date:

A day earlier, the PTI chief was the subject of a non-bailable arrest warrant from a Quetta court.

Imran Khan’s arrest warrant, which did not allow for bail, was suspended by the Balochistan High Court on Friday for a period of two weeks.

In order to have the case against Imran dismissed, a petition was being heard by Justice Zaheer-Ud-Din Kakar. Iqbal Shah of the Insaf Lawyers Forum (ISF) submitted the petition on the PTI chairman’s behalf.

The PTI leader’s arrest warrant was issued by a local Quetta court a day earlier in connection with a case of incitement against state institutions that was filed in the Balochistan capital.

The PTI leader argued in it that the allegation on which the case was filed did not occur within the boundaries of the Bijli Road police station and, as a result, does not fall under its purview.

The petition requested that the BHC drop the FIR.

Justice Kakar issued summonses for the Balochistan police chief, SP legal, and SHO in the case while suspending the warrant.

After that, the hearing was postponed for two weeks.

Police from Quetta travel to Lahore to detain Imran.
The non-bailable warrant for Imran Khan’s arrest had just been delivered to Lahore when a team of Quetta police arrived there.

The police team consisted of two other officers, a sub-inspector, Superintendent of Police (SP) Investigations Nadeem, and Deputy Superintendent of Police Abdul Sattar. The Lahore police were supposed to help them.

Meanwhile, PTI employees flocked to the PTI chief’s Zaman Park home from all directions.

Defending Imran Khan in court
Imran Khan’s case had been filed under several sections of the Pakistan Penal Code (PPC) and the 2016 Prevention of Electronic Crimes Act (PECA).

An arrest warrant had been issued by a judge, who also instructed the police to bring the former prime minister before a judge.

A first information report (FIR) was filed at a police station in Quetta against Khan for the remarks he made during a speech on Sunday about state institutions and their employees.

A first information report (FIR) was filed at a police station in Quetta against Khan for the remarks he made during a speech on Sunday about state institutions and their employees.

The complaint was filed at the Bijli Road police station by complainant Abdul Khalil Kakar. Sections 153A, 124A, and 505 of the PPC as well as Section 20 of the PECA were included in the FIR. The PTI leader’s statement, according to Kakar, was an effort to undermine public peace and order.

After a team from the Islamabad police arrived at the PTI leader’s Zaman Park residence to arrest him in the Toshakhana case, the PTI leader took a harsh stance against state institutions in a speech on Sunday.

The former prime minister, who lost his position in April of last year, lashed out at party members and participants in the “Jail Bharo Tehreek” while speaking to them at the Zaman Park residence in Lahore (voluntary arrest movement).

The PTI chairman claimed in his vehement speech that he had never prostrated himself in front of a group or individual and would not permit the country to do so.
