An anti-terrorism court in Islamabad has extended interim bail of PTI Chairman and former prime minister Imran Khan in a case pertaining to violation of Section 144 and interfering in the state’s affairs, reported 24NewsHD TV channel.

ATC Judge Raja Jawad Abbas conducted the hearing of the case on Monday, and extended Imran Khan’s bail until November 28.

The judge also granted exemption from appearance to the former prime minister on medical grounds for Monday’s hearing while seeking complete medical report on the next hearing.

The Islamabad High Court (IHC) Monday adjourned without hearing a petition for the disqualification of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan till November 24 over not showing a daughter in his nomination papers, reported 24NewsHD TV channel.

“The case has been adjourned, and it will be heard on the next date,” the court said to him.

IHC Chief Justice Aamer Farooq had heard the case.

“Imran Khan concealed facts in the nomination papers,” the petition read.

“Imran Khan did not show a daughter in the nomination papers,” it added.

A citizen named Sajid had filed a petition for the disqualification of PTI Chairman Imran Khan.
