Islamabad court rejects plea seeking Imran's arrest warrant in judge threatening case

A district and sessions court in the federal capital turned down a petition made by the prosecutor seeking issuance of arrest warrant for PTI Chairman Imran Khan in the woman judge threatening case.

During the hearing, the PTI chief filed a petition seeking exemption from appearance on medical grounds through his counsel Naeem Panjohtha. His lawyer said doctors had not allowed Mr Khan for travel as he is recovering from his bullet wounds.

Prosecutor Rizwan Abbasi opposed the exemption plea, saying the PTI chief had submitted the medical reports of his own hospital that treats cancer related diseases. He said there was just swelling on Imran Khan’s leg, adding that he could come outside the court to mark his attendance. He pleaded the court to suspend Imran Khan’s bail and issue his arrest warrant.

However, the court rejected his plea and adjourned the case till March 9.
