Islamabad (Web Desk): The Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) on Tuesday moved the Islamabad High Court against the non-bailable arrest warrant for former premier Imran Khan issued by the district and sessions court in the Toshakhana case.
In his plea, the lawyers of the PTI chief requested the court to conduct a hearing today and quash the non-bailable arrest warrants.
In the petition, it is maintained by the PTI lawyers that the impugned orders are against the facts and law and passed by ignoring the settled proposition that each case has to be seen on its peculiar circumstances.
As per the petition, the arrest warrants against Imran were against the facts and laws and “passed by ignoring the settled proposition that each case has to be seen on its peculiar circumstances”.
“It is also a settled law that the superior courts being superior in the hierarchy of the adjudication are to be attended in priority and the same was followed by the petition.”
It also said that Imran was facing “serious health issues” after the Wazirabad shooting and his medical consultants were refraining him from any sort of travelling.
At the same time, the petition added, there was a threat to the petitioner’s life under the current circumstances which was a hindrance to his court appearances.
Earlier on Monday, a district and sessions court in Islamabad on Monday rejected Imran Khan’s plea seeking the suspension of the non-bailable arrest warrant issued for him in the Toshakhana case.
Additional Session judge Zafar Iqbal announced the verdict that he had reserved earlier in the day after a brief hearing of the case.
PTI lawyers Qaisar Imam, Ali Bukhari and Barrister Gohar appeared on behalf of the party head in the hearing.
It also stated that due to the orders, the liberty of the petitioner has been prejudiced detrimentally.
