A district and session court in Islamabad on Monday issued a non-bailable warrant against Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf chairman and former prime minister Imran Khan in a case pertaining to using threatening language against a woman additional district and sessions judge and senior police officials, Dawn reported.

The court ordered the police to arrest Khan and present him by March 29, on which date arguments on the former prime minister’s petition to be dismissed from the case will also be heard.

In August last year, Khan had condemned the alleged custodial torture of his aide Shahbaz Gill and said that his party will file cases against Additional District and Sessions Judge Zeba Chaudhry and Inspector General of Police (IGP) Dr Akbar Nasir Khan.

Following his comments, Khan was booked under various sections of the Pakistan Penal Code (PPC) and Anti-Terrorism Act (ATA).

Moreover, the Islamabad High Court also initiated contempt of court proceedings against him. The terrorism and contempt of court charges were later dropped, but a similar case is pending before the sessions court.

Meanwhile, Khan, without revealing details, said he has a plan ready in case of his arrest. “In case I am arrested, we have a plan ready which will be shared with the nation when the time is right,” he was quoted as saying by Geo News.
