A special anti-terrorism court on Tuesday (Nov 19) reserved its verdict over an acquittal plea filed by Prime Minister Imran Khan in the Pakistan Television (PTV) and Parliament attack case. The verdict will be announced on Dec. 5.
Earlier, Khan’s defence counsel Babar Awan completed his arguments in the courtroom, and maintained that anti-terrorism provisions could not be imposed in violation of Section 144 and speeches during sit-ins.
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.
