Islamabad High Court (IHC) has stopped police from arresting Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan.

The court has said that Khan should be given a chance to present himself before the Islamabad sessions court which issued the non-bailable arrest warrants for Khan and directed the police to present him before them on March 18 (Saturday).

Imran en route to LHC to offer assurance that he will go to Islamabad tomorrow

Khan will also present himself before the Lahore High Court (LHC) on Friday afternoon (today) to assure the judge that he will appear before the Islamabad sessions court — which has issued non-bailable arrest warrants for him— tomorrow.



It is pertinent to mention here that since Tuesday the Islamabad police and Rangers have been trying to arrest Imran failed to do so.

The police arrived with Khan’s arrest warrant which was issued by a court in Islamabad on Monday, March 13, due to his continuous absence from the hearings of the Toshakhana case. The court had also directed police to present the ex-premier in court by March 18.

A case was registered against Khan that he hadn’t disclosed gifts that he received and was supposed to deposit in Toshkahana before selling them. Despite the court’s numerous warnings, Khan didn’t appear before the judge.
