IHC Rules: No arrest of Imran Khan in cases filed after 9 May

Islamabad, Pakistan, May 11: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chairman Imran Khan at the Supreme Court of Pakistan, in Islamabad on Thursday.

A division bench of the Islamabad High Court on Friday ordered not to arrest Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chairman Imran Khan in any case filed after 9 May, as per the media report.

The court also granted the former premier bail for two weeks in the Al-Qadir Trust case. The judgement came a day after the Pakistan Supreme Court termed his arrest from the IHC premises “invalid and unlawful”, Dawn reported.

Further, according to Dawn News, the Islamabad High Court, while granting a reprieve to the former prime minister, said Imran Khan should be granted bail if martial law, which is sanctioned by Article 245 of the country’s Constitution, has been enforced in the country for two weeks.

A division bench comprising Justice Miangul Hassan Aurangzeb and Justice Saman Rafat Imtiaz heard the PTI chief’s bail plea in courtroom No. 3.
Dawn NewsTV reported that Imran’s lawyers had also filed four additional pleas urging the IHC to club all the cases against him and direct authorities to provide details of the cases registered against him.
