Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf chief Imran Khan was granted permanent bail by an Islamabad district and sessions court on Thursday in the latest twist of events surrounding the former premier’s threatening speech against Judge Zeba Chauhdry.

Sessions Judge Kamran Basharat Mufti granted Imran permanent bail in two cases against a bond of Rs 50,000, including in the case registered at the Kohsar police station against his threatening remarks.

During the arguments, the public prosecutor contended that Imran had threatened public servants.

Imran’s lawyer Babar Awan maintained that the PTI had taken permission to hold their rally in the park where the remarks were made. The initial case against the former prime minister was registered on August 20 with the Margala Police Station in the federal capital over his remarks at a rally in F9 Park where he warned Additional District and Sessions Judge Zeba Chaudhry and police high-ups of dire consequence, as well as the judiciary for what he had called its “biased” attitude towards his party.
