Islamabad court reserved its verdict on Imran khan's petition to extend the suspension of an arrest warrant that was issued in judge threats case

Imran Khan, the chairman of the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf, filed a petition to suspend an arrest warrant issued in a case involving alleged threats against a judge, and an Islamabad district and sessions court reserved its decision on the petition on Friday.

On March 13, Senior Civil Judge Rana Mujahid Rahim had issued non-bailable arrest warrants for Imran while hearing a case registered against the ex-premier for using threatening language against ADSJ Zeba Chaudhry and the Islamabad police officials.

The PTI challenged the warrants in the district court, ADSJ Faizan Haider Gilani on March 14 asked Imran’s counsel to submit security documents in court and had suspended the arrest warrants till March 16.
