Imran Khan gets bail in 10 cases related to PTI long march

ISLAMABAD: The anti-terrorism court (ATC) on Saturday approved bail of the former Prime Minister Imran Khan in 10 cases related to inciting violence on May 25 during PTI’s long march to Islamabad.

The ATC expressed its displeasure at the nonexistence of investigation involving Zubair Niazi, Sheikh Imtiaz, Mian Akram Usman and Azeem Afzal and ordered an immediate investigation of the said accused, upon which the statements of Zubair Khan Niazi and others were immediately recorded.

During the hearing, the court directed the investigating officer to record the statements of the accused outside the court, and adjourned the hearing for some time while calling the lawyers of the accused for arguments.

The hearing of the cases relating to violence amid the PTI long march was held at a session court in Islamabad. PTI Chairman Imran Khan attended the hearing to plea for bail in the cases.

Former Prime Minister Imran Khan has been granted bail for a security challan of Rs 5000. The PTI Chief has been granted bail until the first week of September.

The court has ordered the police to bring the details of case 425 to the next hearing.

Earlier on July 25, the anti-terrorism court (ATC) in Lahore extended interim bail of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) leaders in a vandalism case during the Long March on May 25.
