PTI workers and activists have gathered outside the Anti-terrorism court (ATC) to show support for former Prime Minister Imran Khan who will seek pre-arrest bail in a terror case filed against him by the Islamabad police.

Since Imran Khan will appear in person before the court, a large number of PTI supporters have already gathered outside the ATC to show their support. Videos were shared by PTI’s official Twitter account, showing the supporters chanting slogans against the incumbent government.

According to the details, strict security measures are in place and the roads leading to the judicial complex have been blocked using barbed wires while as many as 400 policemen and personnel of Frontier Corps are deployed at the complex. Interestingly, the police have also barred media from entering the premises of the ATC.

On Wednesday, Imran Khan decided to appear before the court for an extension in his bail plea. Previously, the Islamabad High Court (IHC) had granted pre-arrest bail to former prime minister Imran Khan till August 25 in a terrorism case.

Terrorism case against Imran Khan

Imran Khan was booked under Section 7 of the Anti-Terrorism Act (punishment for acts of terrorism) regarding his comments at his Islamabad rally on Saturday.

According to the First Information Report (FIR), he threatened Additional Sessions Judge Zeba Chaudhry and police officers at a rally in F-9 Park to “terrorise” police officials and the judiciary.

To clarify, during his speech on Saturday, Imran Khan threatened to file cases against Islamabad’s inspector general of police and deputy inspector general of police.

“We won’t spare you,” he warned.

Not holding back, the former premier had also taken exception to Additional District and Sessions Judge Zeba Chaudhry, who had approved his close aide Shahbaz Gill’s two-day physical remand at the request of the capital police, and said she should “prepare herself as action would be taken against her”.
