Imran Khan reaches LHC to appear for bail in nine cases

Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan has reached Lahore High Court (LHC) to appear before the court on Friday.

In this regard, the strict security arrangements were made, while an additional police force has also reached the Lahore High Court.

Before leaving Zaman Park, Mr Khan told his stalwarts, “Allah Almighty helps those who stand by truth. I would like to thank Almighty Allah, who gave me plenty of respect. It is a matter of great happiness that the PTI workers are standing by truth.”

The LHC had summoned Mr Khan at 4:30 pm. In this regard, the LHC had ordered the Punjab IG to provide Mr Khan the facility on his appearance before the court.

Earlier, PTI leader Fawad Chaudhry confirmed that Mr Khan would appear in court at 2pm. He said the former premier had submitted a petition for protective bail in nine cases registered against him.

Fawad Chaudhry, in a twitter message, said Azam Nazir Tarrar was issuing a statement about the need to sit together to jointly solve all issues and Shehbaz Sharif had also hinted at negotiation but they should walk the talk. He demanded that the government give date for such a meeting involving politicians as Imran Khan was in favour of dialogue.

Meanwhile, the high court on Friday extended its order halting an operation to arrest Imran Khan till 3pm. Justice Tariq Saleem Sheikh issued the order while hearing a petition filed by PTI leader Fawad Chaudhry to stop police from action at Zaman Park after supporters of the former prime minister fought pitched battles with security forces when police tried to arrest Imran Khan in the Toshakhana case.

At the outset of the hearing, Punjab Inspector General of Police (IGP) Usman Anwar said the chaos was witnessed after rules were defied. Referring to Thursday’s meeting with PTI leaders at the chief secretary office, he said it had been decided that the political party would appoint a focal person.

At one point, Justice Sheikh in conversation with Fawad Chaudhry said they should approach the IGP for security, adding that they could move courts on unsatisfactory response from the authorities. He said containers should be used for exports instead of placing them as barricades.
