IHC has asked Imran Khan to approach the Sessions Court
No relief for the PTI Chief from the Islamabad High Court, as the court dismissed the petition to cancel the arrest warrant of Imran Khan in the Tonshakhana Case.
The IHC has asked Imran Khan to approach the Sessions Court for suspension of warrants and ordered the lower court to issue a verdict in line with the Constitution after the submission of the undertaking. If the trial court was convinced by the undertaking, it would suspend the warrants, the court remarked.
Chief Justice Islamabad High Court Justice Aamir Farooq heard the petition of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan and while dismissing the petition, asked him to present the affidavit given in the Islamabad High Court in the trial court.
The court upheld Imran Khan’s arrest warrant and said that the trial court should decide on this affidavit according to the law.
Chairman PTI’s lawyer, Khawaja Haris, while filing the application yesterday, requested to hear it on Tuesday itself, however, the Supreme Court fixed the hearing for today.
Earlier in the day the IHC reserved verdict on PTI’s plea challenging Imran Khan’s arrest warrant
The court asked Khawaja Haris whether what is happening in Lahore is right. Khawaja Haris said that what is happening in Lahore is also wrong.
Chief Justice Amir Farooq said that it is the police state, which is being pelted with stones and petrol bombs, we have children on both sides whether they are police or political party workers.
The court remarked, “Can anyone touch a policeman’s uniform in the UK?” It cannot happen there at all.
The Additional Attorney General said that if the previous affidavit had been followed, all this would not have happened today.
Chief Justice Islamabad High Court said that I have to see the dignity of my court and other things as well, whatever is happening in Lahore, we have children on both sides.
Advocate General said that Imran Khan is a national leader, so why is he afraid to appear in court, Imran Khan has been in the UK, and he should implement the law.
The court remarked that all present and past politicians have done nothing in society building.
Chief Justice of Islamabad High Court Amir Farooq reserved the decision after the arguments of the lawyers on the request to suspend the arrest warrant of Imran Khan.
