ATC orders seizure of Imran Khan, Tahirul Qadri’s assets
July 15, 2017

ISLAMABAD, 15 July: On the orders of Anti-Terrorism Court, action has been initiated to take the property of the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chairman Imran Khan and Pakistan Awami Tehreek (PAT) chief Dr Tahirul Qadri into government custody.

The judge Shahrukh Arjumand while hearing the case on Friday asked the Revenue Department and local administration of Islamabad to provide details of assets owned by Imran Khan and Tahirul Qadri. The court asked both the departments to submit their reports immediately.

A petition was lodged in the Anti-Terrorism Court against Imran Khan and Tahirul Qadri over charges of damaging government property and torturing a senior superintendent of police in Islamabad during sit-in of both the parties seeking resignation of Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif over alleged irregularities in the 2013 general elections. The court earlier declared Imran and Qadri absconders over not appearing in the court.

The PTI chief is of the view that he will not obtain bail in the case which is politically motivated.

Islamabad Police said in its report to the court that policemen visited the residences of Imran and Qadri several times, but they were not present at home. After the police report, the court ordered displaying charge sheet against these leaders on their houses and public places.
