ISLAMABAD: A first information report (FIR) was registered against former prime minister Imran Khan under the Anti-Terrorism Act for threatening an additional sessions judge and senior police officers of the Islamabad Police at a rally in the federal capital’s F-9 Park.
The FIR was registered on the complaint of Magistrate Ali Javed in the Margalla Police Station of Islamabad under Section 7 of ATA.
The FIR states that the PTI chairman threatened Additional Sessions Judge Zeba Chaudhry and police officers at a rally in F-9 Park to “terrorise” the police officials and the judiciary. The main aim of the intimidation was to prevent the police officers and the judiciary from carrying out their legal obligations, says the FIR.
The FIR states that Imran Khan’s speech was aimed to spread unrest and terror among the people.
A day earlier, PTI chief Imran Khan warned that he would “not leave” Islamabad’s inspector-general, deputy inspector general, and female magistrate, vowing to file cases against them for torturing Shahbaz Gill.
“We will not spare the IG and DIG,” he said while addressing a public gathering at the F-9 park. The former prime minister called out Additional District and Sessions Judge Zeba Chaudhry, who last week had approved Gill’s two-day physical remand at the request of the capital police, and said she too should prepare herself as the case will also be registered against her.
The PTI chief passed the remarks while leading a rally in Islamabad from Zero Point to F-9 Park in support of incarcerated leader Shahbaz Gill, who the party said was subjected to alleged “gruesome torture” in police custody.
