Pakistan: Imran Khan still detained in Attock Jail despite orders to shift him to Adiala Jail

Despite requests to transfer Imran Khan to Adiala Jail, he is still detained in Attock Jail

Imran Khan

Imran Khan, the leader of the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf, has not yet been transferred to Rawalpindi’s Adiala Jail, despite orders from the Islamabad High Court on Monday to do so, according to Dawn.
Imran was brought to Attock Jail despite an order from the Islamabad High Court for the superintendent of Adiala Jail to accept him.
Security issues and the lack of a formal letter, according to Dawn, were the main drivers behind this.

However, one of his attorneys spread false information about Imran Khan’s transfer to the Adiala Jail on social media channels.
Khan was allegedly sent to Adiala Jail, according to senior member of his legal defense team Barrister Naeem Panjhota.

However, the Attock Jail administration denied the claim and said that he had not been shifted due to security reasons and that they were still “hosting” him, Dawn reported.
Mr Panjhota shared on social media ‘X’ that he had been informed that Imran Khan had been shifted to Adiala Jail but “it is beyond understanding that Attock Jail (authorities) are also saying that they have PTI chairman”.
