The Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan’s arrest warrant, which had been issued by a regional court in a case against him in Quetta, was suspended by the Balochistan High Court (BHC) on Friday for a period of two weeks.
The suspension occurs as a Quetta police squad arrives in Lahore to arrest the PTI leader in accordance with a court ruling.
On behalf of the PTI leader, Iqbal Shah of the Insaf Lawyers Forum (ISF) filed a petition, which was heard by Judge Zaheer-Ud-Din Kakar of the BHC.
The court was asked to reject the FIR since, according to the plea, the crime was not committed inside the boundaries of the Bijli Police Station, where the complaint had been filed.
The Balochistan police chief, SP legal, and the station house officer of the Bijli Police Station were all sent summonses along with the suspension of the warrant by Justice Kakar.
After that, the hearing was postponed for two weeks.
