A court in Pakistan’s Islamabad on Saturday issued an arrest warrant for the country’s former PM Imran Khan for allegedly threatening a female judge at a rally in August.
The magistrate issued the arrest warrant on the request of the police on Saturday for not following the case. Imran Khan was booked in a terrorism case on the complaint of Islamabad Saddar Magistrate Ali Javed for threatening the judge.
As the news spread, PTI workers started congregating at Imran’s Bani Gala residence. The workers also came out in different cities of the country to warn the government against arresting their leader.
Meanwhile, the Islamabad police also denied sending a team to arrest the former prime minister.
Last month, the court removed terror-related charges from the case. Pakistan’s Interior Minister Rana Sana Ullah Khan told Geo News that the warrant was “routine and bailable”.
