Imran Khan is all set to show up in court. The decision defuses a volatile stand-off between Khan’s supporters & security forces, who have tried to arrest him for evading the legal proceedings. Khan’s decision came after the High Court in the capital Islamabad cancelled an arrest warrant. The court had issued the warrant after the former pm repeatedly failed to attend hearings.
Khan is facing charges that he unlawfully sold state gifts given to him by foreign dignitaries when he was pm, from 2018 to 2022. The election commission had found him guilty & barred him from holding public office for one parliamentary term. Khan denies the charges. Attempts by the security forces to arrest khan triggered pitched battles with his supporters earlier this week.
The former PM told supporters that he had not attended the hearings because he feared for his safety. Police used water cannons & tear gas at the petrol bomb hurling crowds that surrounded Khan’s Lahore home.
