Imran takes back bail applications after filing in LHC

Imran Khan skips NAB appearance in Al-Qadir trust case

LAHORE: Chairman of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Imran Khan has taken back applications for protective bail in three cases after refusal of the Lahore High Court registrar to fix them for hearing today.
The applications were filed by the PTI chairman’s lawyers, requesting for 15 days of protective bail in two cases of Ramna police station and one case registered in Quetta.
The applications were filed by Barrister Salman Safdar, who requested the additional registrar to fix the applications for hearing today.
The applications state that protective bail should be granted for the purpose of appearing before the relevant court. On the other hand, an interesting conversation took place between Additional Registrar and PTI leaders regarding the filing of applications in Lahore High Court and urgent hearing. The Additional Registrar stated that the principle of protective bail requires the accused to be present in court first. All judges have already left, and the applications would be fixed for hearing once Imran Khan reaches the court. First, bring Imran Khan to Lahore High Court, and then we will schedule hearings for your applications. He further stated that previously, the PTI lawyers did not present Imran Khan before the court after filing an application.
The PTI lawyer argued that first, the court should hear their petition against the imposition of Section 144. The police have surrounded Zaman Park from all sides, and the petition against the imposition of Section 144 should be heard today, he said.
When the additional registrar refused to schedule the hearing of the applications on urgent basis, the Imran Khan’s lawyers took back the applications.
