Imran Khan, the leader of the PTI, was granted a pre-arrest bail extension by an anti-terrorism court in Islamabad on Monday until September 20 in connection with a terrorism case stemming from allegations that he threatened Additional Sessions Judge Zeba Chaudhry at a public rally in Islamabad on August 20.
In his address at a gathering, Khan made threats against a second sessions judge and high-ranking members of the Islamabad Police. For this, he was charged under the Anti-Terrorism Act (ACT).
To grant Khan transit bail until August 25, the party had petitioned the Islamabad High Court (IHC).At a gathering in F-9 Park, Additional Sessions Judge Zeba Chaudhry and police personnel were intimidated, according to the FIR filed against Khan, who also vowed to “terrorise” law enforcement and the court.
The main goal, according to the FIR, was to prevent the police and judiciary from carrying out their legal duties. The FIR was filed in accordance with Section 7 of the ATA when Magistrate Ali Javed complained to the Margalla Police Station in Islamabad.
