Islamabad (Web Desk): Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman and former premier Imran Khan on Monday arrived at the Islamabad High Court (IHC) seeking bail in multiple cases registered against him in the federal capital.
The PTI chief is seeking bail in seven cases registered against him following the vandalism at the judicial complex during his last visit to Islamabad.
In the petitions filed in the IHC today, Khan sought protective bails in seven cases registered against him at Golra, Bara Kahu, Ramna, Khanna, and Counter-Terrorism Department (CTD) police stations in cases related to violence outside the Federal Judicial Complex on March 18, where Imran had appeared in the Toshakhana case.
The plea urges the court to stop the federal government from arresting the former premier in those cases, adding that the cases have been registered for political revenge.
Meanwhile, the Islamabad administration has imposed Section 144 (ban on public gatherings) in the capital and warned of arrests in case of the violation of its order.
“In light of court orders, only relevant individuals will be allowed to enter the court premises,” the Islamabad police tweeted.
It said that the PTI had named Amir Kiyani for coordination between the police and the party. Moreover, a central control room has also been established at the Safe City Headquarters.
