Islamabad: Babar Awan, Imran Khan’s lawyer in the case related to threats to Additional Sessions Judge Zeba Chaudhry, says that Imran Khan has been investigated in the case.
Judge Raja Jawad Abbas of the Anti-Terrorism Court is hearing the case related to the explosion of female judge Zeba Chaudhry on behalf of Imran Khan.
Imran Khan’s lawyer Babar Awan appeared in the Anti-Terrorism Court in the case related to the intimidation of Additional Sessions Judge Zeba Chaudhry.
Babar Awan requested the court to allow Imran Khan’s car to come to the judicial complex, to which the judge said that if you had told this earlier, we would have given permission earlier.
The judge asked Babar Awan whether Imran Khan was involved in the investigation. On which Babar Awan said that Imran Khan has been involved in the investigation, the investigating officer himself had told that the investigation was done by the lawyer.
Imran Khan’s lawyer further said that the Islamabad High Court has received a notice on the request for dismissal of the case. Do it.
The investigating officer told the court that 3 notices were sent to Imran Khan but Imran Khan has not yet joined the investigation, a statement came through the lawyer asking him to appear himself.
Anti-Terrorism Court Judge Raja Jawad Abbas remarked that the statement reached you which you did not make part of the record, it proves your malice.
The court directed the prosecutor to guide the court to constitute a JIT on the matter, how many days did it take to register the FIR and why was the JIT constituted late? The crime you are referring to is a matter of speech, why do you need a personal accused for it?
The assistant prosecutor said that the investigating officer has to answer questions from the accused, the accused should come, join the investigation, if called by the investigating officer, the accused must appear.
The judge of the anti-terrorism court asked Imran Khan’s lawyer that do you have any difficulty in recording the statement in the JIT? To which Babar Awan replied that many leaders including Liaquat Ali Khan have been killed, Imran Khan also has security concerns.
