An anti-terrorism court (ATC) situated in the federal capital has on Tuesday rejected bail petitions submitted by the Chairman of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI), Imran Khan, in three separate cases. The verdict came from ATC Judge Abul Hasnat Zulqarnain concerning two cases registered against the former Prime Minister at Khana police station and one at Bhara Kahu police station.

The dismissal of the bail pleas was attributed to Imran Khan’s non-appearance, as he is presently serving a three-year sentence in the Toshakhana case at Attock Jail. Imran Khan’s arrest occurred on August 5 from his Zaman Parks residence in Lahore immediately after a district and sessions court in the federal capital sentenced him to three years in jail for the Toshakhana criminal case.

The verdict found Imran Khan guilty of concealing Toshakhana gifts in his asset declarations. The case against him had been initiated by the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) for the nondisclosure of Toshakhana gifts in his assets.

The sessions court further imposed a fine of Rs100,000, stipulating that failure to deposit the fine amount could lead to an extension of the jail term by six months. The judge also issued arrest warrants against Imran Khan, directing the Islamabad Inspector General of Police (IGP) for their implementation.

Subsequent to the sentence, the PTI chief faces disqualification for a five-year period in accordance with the Election Act.
