ISLAMABAD: In compliance with the orders of the anti-terrorism court, PTI Chairman Imran Khan finally appeared before the Islamabad Police’s joint investigation team (JIT) in a terror case for allegedly threatening Additional Sessions Judge Zeba Chaudhry during a public rally in Islamabad on August 20. 

Imran Khan was booked for terrorism under Section 7 of the Anti-Terrorism Act for making controversial remarks against the sessions judge and the senior police office on August 20.

Earlier, the PTI leader had been avoiding the JIT despite being given a third notice for appearing by the JIT probing the terrorism charges against him.

On September 12, prosecutor Raja Rizwan Abbasi apprised ATC Judge Raja Jawad Abbas Hassan that the PTI chairman had not yet joined the investigation.

During the course of the proceedings, the ATC judge ordered the prosecution and Khan’s counsel to decide where and when to become a part of the investigation and extended the PTI leader’s interim bail till September 20.

Imran Khan, however, recorded his statement before the JIT at the SSP office in Islamabad.
