Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) core committee on Monday strongly condemned jail authorities for not allowing a medical check-up of party founder Imran Khan.

PTI wants Khan’s physician Dr Asim to examine the former Prime Minister.

It also urged the court to take quick notice of the matter.


In the party meeting, the panel also condemned the recent reference filed against the Islamabad High Court Judge Justice Mohsin Akhtar Kayani.

It was of the opinion that the reference against the judge was part of the incumbent government’s efforts to pressurise and intimidate judges.

The saga of ‘toxic letters’ sent to judges, who exposed the interference of spy agencies in the judiciary, was termed as highly regrettable and a part of an organized campaign against the judiciary.
