Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Barrister Gohar Khan has alleged that his family was subjected to an attack while he was present in the Supreme Court on Saturday. The incident unfolded during the hearing of the Election Commission of Pakistan’s (ECP) plea challenging the Peshawar High Court’s (PHC) verdict favoring the PTI in the bat symbol and intra-party polls case.

Upon receiving the distressing update, the PTI chief promptly left the premises of the Supreme Court. During a conversation with his colleague and fellow party member Barrister Ali Zafar, Barrister Gohar expressed concern over the safety of his family.

“News has just come from home. People came in four double cabins and took the computer,” he stated, highlighting the severity of the incident.

Barrister Gohar informed his colleague that his sons and nephews had been physically assaulted during the attack. The PTI lawyer, addressing the courtroom, emphasized the gravity of the situation, stating that some people reached his home and beat up his family members.

X (former Twitter) user Salaar Khan wrote, “Barrister Ghar Ali Khan informs the Supreme Court that unidentified personnel have entered his home and beaten up his family. He asks the court for indulgence and is told people are looking into it.
He begs the court for indulgence to explain. The scene cuts.”

In response to the unsettling news, Chief Justice of Pakistan (CJP) Isa expressed disapproval, stating, “Whatever happened should not have happened.” He then summoned the additional attorney general to address the matter promptly.

The additional attorney general assured the court that he would investigate the incident and left the courtroom. The reported attack on Barrister Gohar Khan’s family adds a concerning dimension to the ongoing legal proceedings, and further details are expected to emerge as the investigation unfolds.
