ISLAMABAD: On Wednesday, a banking court denied Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chairman Imran Khan’s request for exemption from the personal presence and ordered him to appear in court by 3:30 p.m. in the prohibited funding case.

Rakhshanda Shaheen, a Special Judge of the Banking Court, has issued her decision on Imran Khan’s petition for exemption from presence in the funding case.

On December 31, the banking court denied Khan’s request to attend the hearing of the prohibited funding case via video link. The banking court granted Imran Khan one last chance to appear in court.

The banking court judge stated that if PTI chief Imran Khan does not appear in court on February 15 or if a fresh plea is filed, the court will terminate his bail.

However, if PTI head fails to appear in court today, his bail would be revoked (Wednesday).

TPTI head had appealed the ruling granted by the banking court on January 31.
