Imran Khan fights legal battles to avoid arrest in various terrorist cases 2023

Imran Khan, the former Prime Minister of Pakistan, continued his legal struggle on Tuesday before a court in Islamabad, the capital city. The judge gave him protection from arrest until the beginning of the next month in numerous instances where he faces terrorist accusations for inciting violence.

This new development comes at a time when the authorities have been tightening their grip on followers of Khan, who is now Pakistan’s most prominent opposition leader. After Khan’s arrest earlier this month, thousands of people participated in violent rallies and carried out attacks on public property as well as military sites.

After only a few days, the violence calmed after Khan was released as a result of an order from the Supreme Court of the country. During the confrontations with the police, ten persons lost their lives.

Former Prime Minister Imran Khan is suing in Islamabad.

Khan, who was removed from office in April of the previous year as a result of a vote of no confidence in Parliament, has been leading a campaign against the government of his replacement, Prime Minister Shahbaz Sharif, asserting that his removal was unconstitutional and calling for early elections.

Since then, the former cricket star turned Islamist politician, who is now 70 years old, has had more than a hundred judicial proceedings brought against him. He is being accused of fraud that allegedly took place when he was in government, and he has been charged with terrorism in eight separate instances because of the violent demonstrations that were staged by his followers and the opposition party that he leads, Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf.

Khan and his wife traveled to the adjacent city of Rawalpindi to appear before the National Accountability Bureau to answer questions in a separate graft investigation after the court in Islamabad on Tuesday gave Khan protection from arrest on terrorist allegations until the 8th of June. The protection from arrest was given on the same day.

The couple is accused of taking a gift of property in exchange for delivering advantages to a real estate magnate in exchange for accepting the donation of property to create a private university. Khan has stated that he and his wife, Bushra Bibi, were not involved in any illegal activity, although he continues to refute the allegations.
