According to details, the former premier has decided to file a petition in an anti-terrorism court (ATC) to avoid arrest in the terrorism case.

A terrorism case was registered against Imran Khan in Margalla police station for allegedly using derogatory language and threatening Additional Sessions Judge Zeba Chaudhry in his speech in Islamabad on August 20.

It is pertinent to mention here that the Islamabad High Court (IHC) had granted pre-arrest bail to former prime minister Imran Khan till August 25 in a terrorism case.
