ISLAMABAD: The sessions court has upheld its earlier judgment of issuing non-bailable arrest warrants of former prime minister Imran Khan in the Toshakhana case. After the drama that unfolded in Lahore on Sunday, the former prime minister Imran Khan had filed a plea, urging the sessions court – which had previously issued his non-bailable arrest warrants – to cancel the said warrants.
A judgment on the plea had been reserved by the courts.
The court had issued the arrest warrants for Khan for failing to show up on several occasions. It is pertinent to mention here that Khan was attending hearings of three other cases when the sessions court issued his arrest warrants.
An Islamabad-based police team was specifically sent to arrest Khan from his Lahore residence but had to return after failing to do so. Khan has filed the plea on grounds that it would provide him the opportunity to appear in courts in-person and defend himself.
