Pakistan: Imran Khan, the former prime minister, was given temporary release by a Pakistani court on Sunday until Friday for intimidating a female judge. Khan has promised to file a lawsuit against top police officers, the Election Commission, and political rivals for the treatment given to his aide Shahbaz Gill during a rally in Islamabad on August 20.
What was the issue?
When the Capital Region Police asked Additional Sessions Judge Zeba Chaudhry to allow Gill two days of custody, the former Prime Minister also used derogatory words in her defence. Chaudhry had been warned by Khan to “be ready as action will be taken against him.”
Khan was booked in this respect some hours after the event.
On the request of the police, the local magistrate issued an arrest warrant for Khan on Saturday. Meanwhile, there were rumors that the police were about to search the Banigala home and take him into custody.
