Pakistan’s Prime Minister Imran Khan on Thursday was acquitted by an anti-terror court in the 2014 Parliament attack case. However, the court has summoned several senior ministers including several foreign ministers, Shah Mahmood Qureshi, in this case. This information came out in the news published in the media.
However, ‘The Express Tribune’ reported that the interim court judge Raja Javed Abbas Hasan has stayed the legal proceedings against President Arif Alvi.
Significantly, the activists of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) and Pakistan Awami Tehreek (PAT) had traveled to Parliament and Prime Minister’s House on 31 August 2014. During this time, three persons were killed and 26 others were injured in the clash with the police of the protesters. PTI is now in power of the country.
Police had registered a case against Imran Khan and other PTI leaders under anti-terrorism sections. According to a news published in Dawn newspaper, Prime Minister Imran Khan’s acquittal came out after his request from the court a week ago. Imran had urged the court to absolve him, citing the prosecution as showing no interest in pursuing the case.
