Imran Khan is once more called by the Islamabad Police to participate in the investigation into a terrorism case.

Imran Khan, the chairman of the PTI, was once more called to appear before a joint investigation team (JIT) looking into a terrorism case against him by the capital city police on Saturday.

The former prime minister was served with a notice today after he neglected to appear before the JIT at the Margalla Police Station in a case filed against him for allegedly threatening Zeba Chaudhry, a judge of a lower court.

Khan should come before the investigation team at 5 p.m. today to ensure that he responds to its inquiries because the notice stated that he is out on bail in the case through September 12.

The former prime minister was also urged to make sure he cooperates with the police in the case’s investigation by the Islamabad High Court (IHC) earlier this week.

Despite the fact that Khan did not show up before the JIT, he responded on Friday via his attorney, arguing that the threats made against a female judge at a rally do not constitute “terrorism” and that the matter should be dropped because he is “innocent.”

Khan told the JIT, “I am the chairman of Tehreek-e-Insaf, I was the prime minister of Pakistan, and the report filed in the Islamabad High Court established the torture of Shahbaz Gill. The government tortured [my assistant] Shahbaz Gill because of political opposition.

According to the PTI leader, what he stated in the speech cannot be classified as terrorism because he did not damage anyone or engage in any unlawful activity.

In accordance with the Anti-Terrorism Act (ATA), a first information report (FIR) was filed on August 21 against the former prime minister for threatening the additional sessions judge and senior Islamabad Police officers during a rally in the federal capital’s F-9 Park.

At the Margalla Police Station in Islamabad, the FIR was filed in response to the magistrate Ali Javed’s complaint in accordance with Section 7 of the ATA.

Following this, Khan was able to get transit bail from the IHC until August 25 but was instructed to contact the ATC as it was the appropriate forum. The interim bail in the terrorism case was subsequently extended by the trial court until September 12.
