Imran was the subject of a first information report (FIR), which was filed against him at the Quetta police station on Bijli Road, by the court of Judicial Magistrate-1 Bashir Ahmed Bazai on Thursday.
Also, the magistrate had given the police orders to detain the PTI leader and bring him before the court. A five-person squad led by Superintendent of Police (SP) Investigations Nadeem had reportedly arrived in Lahore with the goal of apprehending the PTI leader. The team consists of two more officials, Deputy Superintendent of Police Abdul Sattar, and a sub-inspector.
The party has maintained a high level of alertness over the last three days, tweeting “red alert” warnings to the Zaman Park residence to avoid being arrested. The Islamabad police tried to put into effect a court notice to appear for an indictment hearing in the Toshakhana case on Sunday but were unsuccessful in their efforts to apprehend Imran.
Imran Khan’s arrest warrant, which had been issued by a regional court in connection with a case brought against him in Quetta, was suspended by the Balochistan High Court (BHC) on Friday for a period of two weeks.
The arrest of the PTI chairman pursuant to a court order has been pending while a Quetta police squad has arrived in Lahore.
Iqbal Shah of the Insaf Lawyers Forum (ISF), who was arguing for the PTI leader, 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.
