PTI Chairman Imran Khan appeared before the court of Judge Raja Jawad Abbas along with his wife Bushra Bibi. 

In a quick hearing on the former prime minister’s petitions, the court granted him interim bail till June 8. 

At the outset of the hearing, the PTI chief’s lawyer argued that Imran was not directly accused of perpetrating the violence, rather he was accused of instigating the violence. 

On this, Judge Jawad Abbas remarked ‘but Imran did not join investigation in any case except one’. 

In March, several cases were lodged against Imran Khan and dozens of his party leaders for their alleged attack on policemen outside the Federal Judicial Complex in Golra, Ramna, Khanna and the CTD police stations under terrorism charges. 
Earlier today, an accountability court granted Imran’s wife Bushra Bibi interim bail in the Al-Qadir Trust case till May 31, stopping the anti-graft watchdog from arresting her. 
The PTI chairman, after securing bail in eight terrorism cases, headed towards the National Accountability Bureau to join an inquiry in the Al-Qadir Trust case.
However, his vehicle broke down at the back door of the accountability court. He changed his vehicle and continued his journey. 
Later, he reached the office of the bureau where he was allowed entry.

‘People being forced to desert PTI at gunpoint’

During an informal talk with the journalists in the courtroom, Imran said that people were not leaving the PTI with their free will, rather they were being forced to desert the party at gunpoint. 

To a question by a journalist whether all the political parties would come on the same page, Imran instead of replying just passed smile. 

In an allusive reference to generals, Imran said: “Politicians appear before the courts along with their families. But no one else appears before the courts. But the time will change.”
