Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan has challenged the anti-terrorism court’s decision to reject his bail applications in the Lahore High Court (LHC).
The former prime minister filed seven petitions in the Lahore High Court through lawyer Barrister Salman Safdar, in which ATC, Superintendent Attock Jail and others have been made parties.
In the petitions filed in the High Court, it has been argued, “I am in Attock Jail in the Toshakhana case; the anti-terrorism court has rejected the bail applications for non-appearance. Being in jail, it is not in my power and control to appear before the court. The ATC did not properly assess the facts and rejected the bails.”
The PTI chairman has requested the Lahore High Court to set aside the anti-terrorism court’s decision to dismiss the bail applications and order the ATC to hear all the petitions again.
Imran Khan has challenged the anti-terrorism court’s (ATC) verdict in seven cases, including the Jinnah House attack case. A two-member bench will hear the petitions.
