ATC to indict Imran Khan on Feb 6 in May 9 Cases.
The Anti-Terrorism Court (ATC) is scheduled to charge former Prime Minister Imran Khan and ex-Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi on February 6 in connection with the May 9 riot cases.
Presided over by Judge Malik Ijaz at Rawalpindi’s Adiala jail, the ATC proceedings addressed charges against the PTI leaders.
Imran Khan and Shah Mahmood Qureshi appeared before the court, with the former premier claiming his May 9 arrest at the Islamabad High Court (IHC) was unlawful.
Expressing discontent, Imran stated that instead of receiving justice, he faced what he deemed as vindictive legal actions.
During the hearing, the police submitted challans related to the May 9 cases, encompassing allegations related to the GHQ attack and vandalism of sensitive institutions.
The judge extended the judicial remand for both accused PTI leaders until February 6, approving the challans for further hearing and instructing that copies be provided to the accused in the subsequent session.
In a prior development on December 12, a special court operating under the Official Secrets Act re-indicted Imran and Qureshi in the cipher case.
The charge sheet detailed their public flaunting of a classified document during a March 27, 2022 rally, exploiting it for personal gain.
The charges emphasized that these actions had detrimental effects on the nation’s reputation, security, and diplomatic affairs.
Subsequently, on January 9, the former PM and his wife, Bushra Bibi, faced indictment in the Toshakhana graft case. The court, in the same case, rejected the bail application submitted by the PTI founding chairman.
