‘Darling of law’ Imran Khan gets bail in four terrorism cases

ISLAMABAD: An anti-terrorism court (ATC) on Tuesday acknowledged Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan’s bail petitions in each of the four cases with respect to an assault on Pakistan Television (PTV) home office in 2014.

“The choice demonstrates that I am sadiq (honest) and ameen (upright), not a fear based oppressor,” Imran Khan told the media outside the court after the decision by ATC Judge Shahrukh Arjumand.

“I am a Ladla [darling] of the law since I comply with it,” said the PTI head, accepting another open door to target expelled executive Nawaz Sharif and his “absence of straightforwardness”.

“Nawaz Sharif couldn’t have withstood half of the examination that I experienced,” Khan included, alluding to the trial against him in the Supreme Court in which he was cleared a year ago.

“There are bodies of evidence against me since I am considering them responsible,” he guaranteed, including, “I’ve never stolen anything in my life.”

The PTI pioneer is one of the denounced in the four cases identified with the 2014 assault that occurred during the party’s challenge sit in the government capital. Khan had moved the court in December 2017, for the case to be exchanged to a common court, yet his demand had been dismissed by the judge.

Amid Tuesday’s listening ability, Khan’s legal counselor Advocate Babar Awan endeavored to persuade the court that the PTI chairman should not be named for the situation, contending that he was not named in the announcements by the police authorities that were assaulted by the nonconformists in 2014.
