Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman and former prime minister Imran Khan has been requested to be physically detained for 14 days by the National Accountability Bureau (NAB).

Imran Khan was presented before an accountability court in Islamabad.

Imran Khan was provided arrest warrants at the time of his detention, the deputy prosecutor testified to the court.

Responding this, Imran Khan said that he was given warrants after arriving at the NAB office. The deputy prosecutor told the court that all pertinent paperwork will be supplied to Imran Khan’s attorneys.

PTI Chairman’s attorneys Khawaja Haris, Ali Gohar, Faisal Chaudhry, and Ali Bukhari were present in court. Nab Deputy Prosecutor General Sardar Muzaffar Abbasi, the team, and investigating officer Mian Umar Nadeem were also in the courtroom.

Imran Khan was demanded to be allowed custody for 14 days at the hearing, which took place in a courtroom built up inside Police Lines Guest House.

Imran Khan conferred with his legal counsel in the court. Judge Muhammad Bashir postponed the case’s hearing.

The federal government granted the police line, where Imran Khan was produced, the status of a sub-jail at NAB’s request.

It has been notified that the Accountability Court and Sessions Court have been relocated to police line H-11.
