The court makes a decision on the request for the release of the PM | Instant News


ISLAMABAD: The anti-terrorism court on Monday adjourned its decision in defense of Prime Minister Imran Khan’s release in the PTV attack case. The court will announce the verdict on October 29.

During the trial, the PM’s attorney submitted a written argument on the request for release in the PTV attack case. He said there were no witnesses who testified about his alleged involvement in the case, nor was there any evidence against him. The PTV attack case was a political case, he said.

The lawyer said there was no possibility that PM Khan would be convicted in the case as it was a baseless case and asked the court to acquit him of all charges under Section 265 of the Criminal Procedure Code (CrPC).

The court also ruled in November after Prime Minister Khan Babar Awan’s advisers finished their arguments. The government prosecutors, during the trial, notified the court that the prosecutors had no objection to Imran Khan’s release. Regarding the judge’s question whether the prosecution would oppose the plea for acquittal, the prosecutor said it was a political case with no consequences.

It is stated here that PM Imran, President Dr Arif Alvi, Asad Umar, Shah Mehmood Qureshi, Shafqat Mehmood and Raja Khurram Nawaz are facing trial for allegedly attacking the PTV building and the Parliament Building during the 2014 sit-in. The clash resulted in the death of three sit-in participants. . Hundreds including demonstrators and police officers were injured in the clashes.
