ISLAMABAD     -   The Islamabad High Court (IHC) Sunday granted pre-arrest bail to Pakistan Tehreek- e-Insaf (PTI) chairman Imran Khan in a case registered against him for his controversial remarks against Additional District and Sessions Judge (ADSJ) Zeba Chaudhry and other police officials at a public rally in the federal capital on August 20. A single bench of IHC comprising Justice Mohsin Akhtar Kayani conducted hearing of the PTI chairman and accepted his ad-interim bail plea filed by Babar Awan advocate in the aforementioned case against the surety bonds worth of ten thousand rupees. The IHC bench granted Khan pre-arrest bail till October 7 and barred the police from arresting him. Besides this, the court also directed the PTI chairman to appear be­fore the concerned court be­fore October 7. It was Sep­tember 30, when Senior Civil Judge Rana Mujjahid Rahim issued arrest war­rants of Imran Khan. In the petition, Khan stated that a terrorism case was initially filed against him, however, the charges were later struck down by the high court and the case was transferred to the sessions court. He al­leged that the local police, on the instigation of political ri­vals of the petitioner, intend­ed to arrest the petitioner. He added that story of the above mentioned FIR is complete­ly false, concocted and base­less as the petitioner did not violate any law of the land.He also contended that the in­stant case is lodged by polit­ical rival regime of the peti­tioner which is purely based on malice, and the police offi­cials are used as a tool to fab­ricate the FIR. Khan further said that the case in hand is just manifestation of political vengeance and contempt for the petitioner and it is aimed to sooth the political oppo­nents of the petitioner.
