Court converts Imran’s non-bailable warrant into bailable

ISLAMABAD: A local court in Islamabad on Friday converted a non-bailable arrest warrant issued for Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan into a bailable one in the woman judge threatening case.

Additional District and Sessions Judge Sikandar Khan announced the verdict after hearing arguments on warrant review petition filed by the former premier. The session judge also ordered the PTI chairman to submit surety bonds worth Rs20,000.

It may be mentioned here that a senior civil judge had issued non-bailable arrest warrants against Imran Khan till March 29, while Imran Khan had challenged the verdict. Yesterday, the district and sessions court in Islamabad suspended the non-bailable arrest warrant issued for former prime minister and PTI chief Imran Khan for 24 hours.

PTI chief’s lawyers Ali Bukhari and Faisal Chaudhry appeared before the court for a review appeal hearing against a non-bailable arrest warrant in a female judge ‘threatening’ remarks case. Chaudhry, while highlighting the flaws in the decision of issuing a non-bailable arrest warrant for his client, pleaded with the Islamabad court to suspend it.
