Court Suspends Imran Non-Bailable Arrest Warrants In Judge Threatening case

ISLAMABAD: An Islamabad court Thursday suspended the non-bailable arrest warrants of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan in the judge-threatening case till March 20.

Additional District and Sessions Judge Faizan Gillani suspended the warrants and directed Khan to appear before the relevant court on the set date.

Senior civil judge Rana Mujahid Rahim had on March 13 issued Khan’s non-bailable arrest warrant for repeatedly failing to appear before the court.

To avert arrest, the former prime minister had filed a petition in a local court challenging the arrest warrant — but he has still not appeared before the court in person despite repeated summons.

Later, on March 14, Judge Gillani had suspended the arrest warrants till March 16 — and today, he extended the relief.

When prosecutor Rizwan Abbasi appeared before the court during today’s hearing, he opposed the suspension of the arrest warrant, while PTI’s counsel appealed for granting relief to the party chief — and the judge followed through.
