Must read

Islamabad: Ever since Pakistan’s former prime minister Imran Khan stepped down last year, various allegations have been leveled against him. Meanwhile, Imran Khan was arrested on Tuesday in a corruption case related to Al-Qader Foundation. The National Accountability Bureau (NAB) had requested that Imran Khan be remanded in judicial custody for 14 days to investigate the case.

Following this, protests erupted in various parts of Pakistan. Incidents of violence also took place in some places. Meanwhile, in the petition filed by Imran Khan in the court, “I was not allowed to even go to the toilet for 24 hours. I am afraid that they will kill me by lethal injection. “I feel that my life is in danger,” he said.

In this case, the case was heard in the Supreme Court of Pakistan before a three-judge bench headed by Chief Justice of Pakistan Umar Ata Bandial. The judges then expressed anger at the manner in which Imran Khan was arrested and detained in the Islamabad High Court complex in a corruption case related to Al-Qader Foundation. Also, NAB was directed to produce Imran Khan by 4:30 pm (local time) when the court will reconvene.

Subsequently, Imran Khan was produced in the court amid tight security. Continuing the hearing, the bench said, “It is good to see Imran Khan again. How can an individual be arrested from the court premises… No one can be arrested from the court without the permission of the court registrar.

If a person surrenders in court, what is the meaning of arresting him…how can one be denied the right to justice…if 90 soldiers enter the court premises, what respect does the court have…so, Imran Khan’s arrest is illegal.

Therefore the arrest is void. Its entire process must be reversed. The Islamabad High Court is scheduled to hear the case again on Friday. Imran Khan should accept the court order. Ensuring law and order is the responsibility of every politician.”
