PTI Chief Imran arrives at LHC after ‘last chance’ 5pm deadline lapses.
LAHORE: Imran Khan, the former prime minister and PTI chief, has now appeared at the Lahore High Court. He was given a final opportunity to attend the court before 5 pm in relation to the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) protest case.
Imran Khan has arrived at the Lahore High Court amid tight security, followed by a large gathering of supporters.
He will first appear before a division bench headed by Justice Ali Baqar Najafi, and then before Justice Tariq Saleem Sheikh’s court.
The PTI chief is attending the hearing after being given the “last chance” to appear before the court in the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) protest case.
The protective bail filed earlier today was fixed before the same bench, and Khan is expected to enter the court premises following security clearance.
A large group of party workers and supporters gathered outside the Lahore High Court to welcome Imran Khan, the PTI chief who arrived amid tight security.
After security clearance, he will enter the court premises to face a division bench led by Justice Ali Baqar Najafi in a case involving offence 7-ATA along with other FIR-mentioned individuals.
On February 16, the same division bench had dismissed Imran Khan’s protective bail as “non-prosecution.” A fresh application was submitted earlier today and fixed before the same bench.
Then, he will appear before Justice Tariq Saleem Sheikh’s court in a case regarding protests outside the ECP, where he had filed for protective bail.
