ISLAMABAD: A sessions court in Islamabad accepted exemption plea of former prime minister and PTI Chairman Imran Khan in the Toshakhana case today.
The Islamabad district and sessions court was hearing Election Commission of Pakistan’s (ECP) reference against Imran Khan for seeking permission to start criminal proceedings against the latter in Toshakhana case.
The court had summoned PTI Chairman Imran Khan in person for his indictment. However, the PTI chief who did not appear before the court during two previous hearings, also didn’t show up today citing his health and security concerns, and sought exemption.
The application was submitted by Mr Khan’s lawyer Gohar Ali Khan and Ali Bukhari as Additional Sessions Judge Zafar Iqbal resumed hearing the case filed by the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) for criminal proceedings against the PTI chief.
