Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chairman and former prime minister has taken legal action against the cancellation of his interim bails in seven cases, including the Jinnah House attack case, by approaching the Lahore High Court (LHC). Through his lawyer Barrister Salman Safdar, the PTI chairman has contested the revocation of his interim bails, claiming victimization and asserting that the cases are politically motivated.
Scheduled for a hearing at 11am today, a two-member bench of the Lahore High Court will examine the PTI chairman’s petitions. The petitioner seeks fair consideration of his interim bail pleas based on their merits by the relevant court.
The PTI chairman’s arrest was permitted by an anti-terrorism court (ATC) after his bail pleas were denied in the May 9 cases. The court informed that he was convicted under the Election Act and currently remains in custody.
The ATC’s decision granted police authority to investigate and arrest the former prime minister in connection with the Jinnah House attack case.
Notably, PTI Chairman Khan’s recent arrest stems from a separate case, the Toshakhana criminal case, in which he was sentenced to a five-year disqualification and a three-year prison term. This series of legal actions highlights the ongoing legal battles and complexities surrounding the prominent political figure.
