Imran Khan arrives at Islamabad HC in Al-Qadir Trust case amid tight security

Former Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan appeared before the Islamabad High Court on Friday amid tight security in connection with the Al-Qadir Trust case, ARY News reported, a day after the Supreme Court deemed his arrest “illegal” and responsible for fatal clashes across the country.

Imran Khan, the chairman of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI), appears to be seeking bail. Imran Khan’s petition will be heard soon by a two-member special division bench comprised of Justices Miangul Hassan Aurangzeb and Saman Imtiaz.

Extraordinary security measures were put in place in the capital for Imran Khan’s appearance before the high court. There are police and Frontier Corps (FC) personnel on duty outside the IHC.

According to ARY News, containers have been placed near police lines on the Srinagar Highway, and a large contingent of police and Rangers officials have been deployed under the Faizabad Bridge, Srinagar Highway, and Police Lines in Pakistan, where Khan’s supporters have gathered.
