Imran’s non-bailable arrest warrant challenged in IHC

ISLAMABAD: Former Prime Minister and Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chief Imran Khan moved the Islamabad High Court (IHC) on Tuesday to quash non-bailable arrest warrants issued in the Toshakhana case.

On February 28, Additional Sessions Judge Zafar Iqbal of an Islamabad court issued a non-bailable arrest warrant for the former prime minister due to his non-appearance.

Because the lower court issued a non-bailable arrest warrant, the IHC has been asked to hear the bail plea today.

It should be noted that Imran Khan applied to Islamabad’s sessions court yesterday for the cancellation of his arrest warrant, but the request was denied by judge Zafar Iqbal.

Following a brief hearing of the arguments in the case, Additional Session Judge Zafar Iqbal announced the reserved verdict.

In the Toshakhana reference, the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) disqualified former Prime Minister and Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf chairman Imran Khan under Article 63(1). (p).

The ECP stated in the written judgment, “As per Khan’s statement, he purchased the gifts from Toshakhana for 21.564 million rupees, while the Cabinet Division stated that the gifts had a value of 107.943 million.”

“The money in his bank account was roughly half the value of the state gifts. “Imran Khan was required to declare the cash and bank details in his returns, but he did not,” the ECP decision stated.
