Islamabad (February 15, 2018): Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf Chairman Imran Khan on Thursday appeared before the anti-terrorism court.
The court has summoned Imran Khan today in the SSP Asmat Ullah Junejo torture case. The court proceedings were conducted by special court judge Shahrukh Arjumand. The Islamabad police had submitted the challan in the case.
Talking to media before appearing at the ATC court on Thursday, Khan said that Nawaz Sharif wanted to pressurize the judiciary through his criticism in order to get a new NRO.
“I have now forgotten how many times I have appeared before the ATC court,” he said adding he was doing a political struggle but he is framed in anti-terror cases.Khan said that he is a common man and do not consider him as a king like other political leadership in the country.
He said that Ali Tareen was the best candidate for PTI in Lodhran and they would learn from the mistakes and come with more power in next elections.
In last hearing, Khan and his other associates were granted bail by the anti-terror court in four cases including Parliament attack case and Asmat Ullah Junejo torture case.
Talking to media after the court decision, Khan said that it has been proved that he is ‘Sadiq’ and ‘Ameen’ not a terrorist. “Anti-terror laws are used against the political opponents,” he said.
The PTI Chairman expressed hope that the next government will be run by the PTI where they would be contested by mafias not the political parties.
