Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman and former prime minister Imran Khan has asked the Joint Investigation Team (JIT) to dismiss the terrorism case against him on grounds that the threat to the woman judge was not terrorism.
In his written reply to the JIT that was formed to probe the case, Imran Khan has said that what he had said to the woman judge in a rally did not fall under terrorism and therefore the case should be dismissed against him as he was innocent.
The PTI chairman has alleged in his reply that the government had tortured his aide, Shehbaz Gill, for political opposition, adding that the report was filed in the Islamabad High Court (IHC) that had proved that Shehbaz Gill was tortured.
He stated that his words in the speech during rally could not be called terrorism because he had neither committed any illegal act nor had harmed anyone.
The court had directed the PTI chairman to be part of investigation in the case. But Imran Khan, despite having submitted his written reply before the JIT, had not appeared before the investigation team at Margalla police station on Friday.
Imran Khan’s interim bail was extended by an anti-terrorism court of Islamabad till September 12 in the terrorism case against him. The case was registered against him after he had made controversial remarks about a sessions court judge Zeba Chaudhry along with senior officers of Islamabad police.
The FIR registered against the PTI chairman had stated that he had threatened Additional Sessions Judge Zeba Chaudhry and police officers at a rally in Islamabad’s F-9 park.
