Imran gets arrest relief in terror case


 An anti-terrorism court in Islamabad has extended the interim bail of former Pakistan Prime Minister and PTI Chairman Imran Khan till September 12 in an terrorism case related to his controversial remarks about female sessions court judge Zeba Chaudhry and the Islamabad Police.

The court directed Khan to submit Rs100,000 as surety against the bail.

Khan appeared before the court to attend the hearing in person on Wednesday in response to summons issued to him by the court. He had obtained a pre-arrest bail in the case till September 1.

The proceedings will be conducted by Anti-Terrorism Court judge Raja Jawad Abbas Hassan.

PTI counsel Babar Awan told the media: “I told the court that if anything happens to my client, the government, the Inspector General of Police and the DIG Islamabad will be responsible,” he said.

“They are withdrawing security from Khan sahab, and moreover no police from any province can be present with him here,” Awan said.

He said he has submitted a threat letter to the court which stated the intention of some people to kill the PTI chairman.

A case was registered against the former Prime Minister for threatening the additional sessions judge and senior officers of the Islamabad Police during a public rally.
