Following Khan’s arrest on Tuesday the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) submitted a petition challenging the Islamabad High Court’s (IHC) decision calling party chief Imran Khan’s arrest by the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) “legal”.
The SC registrar’s office returned the petition minutes after it was submitted.
The registrar’s office stated that the PTI chief did not approach the relevant forum, adding that he could file an intra-court appeal.
The petition filed by Arshad Ali Chaudhary stated: “It is therefore, respectfully prayed that leave to appeal may please be granted against the impugned order 09-05-2023 passed by Hon’ble Islamabad High Court […] may be set-aside and further after hearing the parties the warrant dated 01-05-2023 issued by Chairman NAB may be declared void and further be directed to release the petitioner/accused forthwith in the interest of justice.”
