ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan Arrested Al-Qadir Trust Case at the Islamabad High Court On Tuesday.
The National Accountability Bureau (NAB) seized the erstwhile premier in the Al-Qadir Trust matter outside the IHC grounds, where he endeavored to procure bail in manifold FIRs filed against him.
Khan was escorted by law enforcement in a somber Vigo vehicle.
Deposed from authority in April the previous year, Khan’s parliamentary vote of confidence defeat led to a plethora of charges against him, including terrorism and malfeasance.
In corroboration, Inspector General of Police (IGP) Islamabad Dr. Akbar Nasir Khan declared Khan’s apprehension in the Al-Qadir Trust case, reassuring that the situation remains manageable.
Fawad Chaudhry, PTI Senior Vice President, contended via Twitter that Khan had been “spirited away” from the courthouse vicinity while numerous attorneys and civilians were “mistreated.”
“Imran Khan has been secreted by unidentified individuals to an undisclosed locale,” he averred.
PTI leader Murad Saeed claimed maltreatment and detention of Khan, exhorting all party members and proponents to mobilize.
In the wake of Khan’s capture, IHC Chief Justice Aamer Farooq responded, summoning the Islamabad IG and the interior secretary within a “quarter of an hour.”
He also directed the Additional Attorney General to materialize in court in 15 minutes, commanding him to promptly discern the responsible party.
“Should an investigation be required, measures shall be enforced against the premier and ministers,” CJ Farooq stated.
Justice Farooq further inquired: “Disclose the case justifying the apprehension?”
The Islamabad advocate general entreated the court to prolong the 15-minute duration to half an hour; nevertheless, his appeal was denied, and he was instructed to materialize within the allotted time.
