The Rawalpindi Police has arrested already imprisoned former Prime Minister Imran Khan in connection with the GHQ attack on May 9. Imran Khan was already arrested in cipher and fraud cases before the GHQ attack case.
An anti-terrorism court (ATC) in Rawalpindi summoned Imran Khan in May 9 cases. However, Imran Khan attended the court sessions via video link as Adiala jail authorities couldn’t produce him in person due to security concerns.
Rawalpindi Bazar Police Station officers requested physical remand of Imran in the May 9 cases during the case proceeding. But ATC Judge Malik Aijaz Asif denied the plea. Malik Aijaz ordered police to question Imran Khan in Adiala jail.
Imran Khan and Shah Mehmood Qureshi were initially arrested in the cipher case. The latest imprisonment comes just days following PTI senior leader Shah Mahood Qureshi’s jail sentence in May 9 cases after the Supreme Court granted him bail in the cipher case.
Shah Mehmood faced remand in Adiala jail for 14 days by a Rawalpindi local court in connection with May 9 charges, including the attack on GHQ on December 28, 2023.
Rawalpindi police initially arrested him from Adiala Jail in a GHQ attack reference. But later on, the government filed 12 more cases relating to violent May 9 rallies against him.
The May 9 case refers to the violent protests of Imran Khan supporters and workers. They broke into sacked military buildings, including the GHQ, to protest Imran’s arrest in the Al-Qadir trust case.
Following that, the Pakistani government arrested hundreds of PTI leaders and workers in the May 9 riots. Many prominent leaders split their ways with Khan following the May 9 riot’s aftermath. Shireen Mazari, Asad Umar, Imran Ismail, Ali Zaidi, and Maleeka Bukhari are among the PTI lefties.
