IHC rejects cancellation of Imran Khan’s arrest warrant

ISLAMABAD: The Islamabad High Court (IHC) on Tuesday rejected former prime minister Imran Khan’s plea seeking cancellation of his arrest warrant.

Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf’s (PTI) legal team reached the Islamabad High Court and filed a petition against the non-bailable arrest warrant in the Toshakhana case. In the petition, it was requested to cancel the warrant and hear it today itself but the Registrar Office objected to Imran Khan’s request. The registrar’s office objected that Imran Khan’s biometrics were not done.

IHC Chief Justice Aamer Farooq will hear Imran Khan’s petition tomorrow. The registrar’s office had objected to Imran Khan not getting biometrics done. Later, Chief Justice Aamer Farooq left the Islamabad High Court.

On the other hand, after the issuance of non-bailable arrest warrants of Imran Khan the Islamabad Police team is present at Zaman Park with a heavy contingent of Lahore Police, where it is facing resistance from PTI workers.
