The court had earlier reserved its verdict in the Long March vandalism case.

Khan’s legal representatives spoke with journalists and stated that the cases against Khan were based on political vengeance.

“No evidence of vandalism found against PTI founder during the long march,” he said, adding that the Islamabad administration did not issue any notification to enforce Section 144 in the capital city.
