Former Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan granted protective bail after in a terrorism case

The Islamabad High Court on Monday granted 3 days of protective bail to Former Prime Minister Imran Khan in a terrorism case filed against him for threatening a female judge, police and other state institutions in a rally.

The FIR registered against him at a police station in Islamabad said that during a rally held by Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf (PIK), Imran Khan terrorised and threatened top police officials and a respected female judge with an objective to stop them from performing their functions.

In the speech given at the PIK rally, Imran Khan threatened to file cases against several high authorities including police officials, a female magistrate, Additional District and Sessions Judge and Election Commission. The threats came in light of the treatment meted out to Imran Khan’s close aide Shahbaz Gill over sedition charges.

He had also threatened to file cases against several political opponents.

The case against Imran Khan was registered in the Margalla Police Station after which he was booked under the Anti-Terrorism Act. He then moved the court to seek a pre arrest bail in the case.
