ISLAMABAD: A court in Islamabad has summoned PTI Chairman Imran Khan on Monday (today) in a case pertaining to his alleged ‘un-Islamic’ marriage with Bushra Bibi, but the Attock Jail officials have expressed their inability to do that citing security risks as the deposed premier’s cypher case would be heard on the same date inside the prison premises.
The Attock Jail superintendent wrote a letter to Civil Judge Qudratullah, who is supposed to hear the PTI chairman’s alleged ‘un-Islamic’ marriage case, that Imran was a high-profile under-trial prisoner in the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) Counter Terrorism Wing’s (CTW) cypher case filed under the Official Secrets Act.
He added in the letter that Special Court Judge Abual Hasnat Zulqarnain was conducting the trial inside the jail premises and that was why Imran should exempted from appearance in the alleged ‘un-Islamic’ marriage case.
However, police sources said the PTI chairman was supposed to be produced before Judge Qudratullah in the alleged ‘un-Islamic’ marriage case and they would provide a list of cops deployed for his security at the court to the Attack Jail authorities.
They added that the Attack Jail authorities would also be provided with the number plates of the Islamabad police vehicles taking Imran to the court.
The sources said the interior ministry had been informed about the proposed measures by the police for presenting the PTI chief in the court.
They continued that the police would immediately take the proposed steps after receiving the final instructions for the appearance of the PTI chief before the court in Islamabad.
