LAHORE: Former Prime Minister and Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan applied for protective bail in a sedition case before the Lahore High Court on Friday.
On the magistrate’s allegation, a case was opened against Imran Khan at the Ramana police station in Islamabad.
During an interview, PTI head used ‘foul’ words against an officer of an intelligence agency, according to the FIR.
In his petition, PTI head claimed that the FIR was politically motivated and that it was filed in violation of the law.
The former premier requested that the high court granted him protective bail so that he could face the appropriate court.
According to a report filed with the IHC last month, the former prime minister is charged in 29 cases in Islamabad.
Chief Justice IHC Justice Aamer Farooq heard Imran Khan’s plea seeking details of cases brought against him in Islamabad.
According to the information provided by the State Counsel, 28 cases were filed against the former prime minister at various police stations in the capital city, and he was booked in one case by the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA).
