Toshakhana case: IHC suspends trial court proceedings against Imran Khan

Imran Khan in Toshakhana case

The Islamabad High Court (IHC) on Friday suspended the proceedings before a trial court in Toshakhana case against Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Supremo Imran Khan.

IHC Chief Justice Aamer Farooq heard the PTI plea seeking the transfer of the Toshakhana case to another court. While Imran’s council Khawaja Haris appeared before the court.

During the hearing, Mr Khan’s lawyer Khawaja Harris said he had four different applications, adding that the ECP secretary was not authorized to send the Toshakhana case to the trial court. He said the ECP did not follow the law by sending the complaint, adding that the complaint could not be sent after the lapse of the set time period.

The IHC chief justice also commented on the security measures taken outside the high court ahead of Imran Khan’s appearance in another case, saying: “It seems curfew has been imposed”.

Mr Harris, later, pleaded with the chief justice to issue a stay order on proceedings in the Toshakhana case. The IHC accepted the plea, ruling that the trial will remain suspended until the PTI plea is decided by it. Later, the case was adjourned till June 8.
