The anti-terrorism court has deferred the verdict on the plea for acquittal of Prime Minister Imran Khan in the PTV and parliament attack case and said that why we should announce the verdict leaving out the acquittal of other accused. Earlier on February 12, the anti-terrorism court had reserved the verdict on the acquittal plea of Prime Minister Imran Khan in the case.
During the hearing, the government prosecutor informed the court that the prosecution has no objection over acquittal of Imran Khan. Replying to the question of the judge whether the prosecution will oppose the application for acquittal, the prosecutor said it was a political case with no consequences.
Prime Minister Khan’s counsel Babar Awan completed his arguments over the acquittal plea of the prime minister. Later, the court reserved its verdict to be announced on December 5.
Earlier, in an attempt to topple the PML-N government, the PTI and PAT workers on August 31, 2014 marched towards the Prime Minister’s House. Later on September 1, hundreds of protesters briefly seized control of PTV. Later, army troops had cleared the buildings.
The FIR, registered on a complaint by Secretariat SHO Inspector Mehboob Ahmed, claimed that the protesters attacked the government building after snatching weapons from policemen.
