Pakistan’s Anti-Terrorism Court granted interim bail to former Prime Minister Imran Khan on Tuesday in eight cases registered against him until the 8th of June. Multiple cases were registered against Imran Khan after clashes erupted between police and his supporters before he appeared at the judicial complex on the 18th of March.
 
Security was beefed up today at the judicial complex and the NAB office ahead of Imran Khan’s arrival and a heavy contingent of police were deployed to deal with any untoward incident.
 
The court after hearing arguments extended interim bail of Imran Khan. The judge also directed the Joint Investigation Team to inform the court how they want Imran Khan to join the investigation. Meanwhile, Khan, in his statement said he is ready to join the investigation.
 
Earlier, Khan’s wife Bushra Bibi was also granted interim bail in the Al-Qadir Trust corruption case until the 31st of May. The accountability court approved the pre-arrest bail plea to Khan’s wife and directed her to submit a surety bond of 5 lakh rupees.
 
The National Accountability Bureau is conducting investigations into the former prime minister, his wife Bushra Bibi, and other PTI officials for their roles in a deal the PTI government made with a property tycoon that reportedly caused a loss of 190 million pounds to the national exchequer.
