A lower court quashed the arrest warrant issued against Pakistan’s former prime minister Imran Khan. Additional District and Sessions Judge (ADSJ) Zafar Iqbal on Saturday ordered the cancellation of the warrant, Dawn Online reported.
Imran Khan went to the court to appear in the Toshkhana case on Saturday. Meanwhile, Imran’s supporters were prevented from entering the court by the police. At one point police and PTI workers clashed. Imran Khan had to stay outside the court for a long time. Finally, Imran’s signature was taken from the court premises. The court allowed Imran to go back due to the chaotic situation. The court adjourned the hearing till March 30.
Dawn Online reported that people inside the court were troubled by stones pelted by Imran’s supporters and tear gas fired by the police to disperse them.
Incidentally, a session court in Islamabad issued a non-bailable arrest warrant against Imran Khan last week in the Toshakhana case. The arrest warrant was issued due to his persistent absence from the hearing of the case.
