Pakistan: Islamabad Police on Sunday reached PTI Chairman Imran Khan’s Zaman Park residence with an arrest warrant in the Toshkhana case. Additional Sessions Judge Zafar Iqbal had issued a non-bailable arrest warrant to the former prime minister in the federal capital on February 28.
According to sources, Khan can be arrested after all legal requirements are fulfilled. Reacting to the news of the arrest, PTI senior vice-president Fawad Chaudhary warned that the situation in the country would worsen if the government took action against the former prime minister. Fawad said, “Any attempt to arrest Imran Khan will seriously worsen the situation. I want to warn this incompetent and anti-Pakistan government not to put Pakistan in further trouble and act sensibly.”
Let us tell you that on February 28, Imran was produced in many cases, hearings were held in different courts. There was relief for him from many places, but in the Toshakhana case, the sword of arrest hung over him. The court had issued a non-bailable warrant against Imran. In fact, on February 28, Imran Khan was to appear in four different cases. He reached for the hearing at other places, but did not attend the hearing during the Toshakhana case.
In this case, Imran has not attended the court hearing before. For this reason the court got angry this time and a non-bailable warrant was issued against Imran Khan. The day of the hearing brought both good news and shock for Imran. Imran had to appear in a foreign funding case, appear in a terrorism-related case, appear in an attempt to murder case and mark his presence in the Toshkhane case.
The PTI chief got relief in the terrorism case, his bail plea was also accepted. Similarly, Imran’s bail plea in the foreign funding case was also accepted. But the Toshkhana case added to his woes.
