ISLAMABAD: An anti-terrorism court (ATC) summoned Pakistan Tehreek-e- Insaf (PTI) Chairperson Imran Khan on February 15 in a case related to violence during a sit-in in the capital in 2014.
The ATC is hearing cases against the PTI and Pakistan Awami Tehreek leadership, including that of the attack on the state television building, Parliament and the then-Islamabad SSP Operations Asmatullah Junejo. ATC Judge Shahrukh Arjumand conducted the proceedings today and summoned Imran on Feb 15 in the Junejo attack case and on Feb 26 in the remaining cases.
At present, Imran is out on bail in the case. On September 1, 2014, violence broke out in the federal capital when PTI and PAT supporters attempted to break a police cordon and storm the PM House, using cranes to remove barricades.
