ISLAMABAD: The Islamabad High Court on Wednesday granted bail to former prime minister Imran Khan in the 190 million pound scam case.

Chief Justice of the IHC Justice Aamir Farooq and Justice Tariq Mehmood Jehangiri had two days ago reserved the judgement and today announced it and ordered the release of the UK incarcerated PTI founder.

The court announced its order verbally in the open court and would release the detailed ruling after a few days.

The court ordered Imran to submit surety bonds of Rs1 million for release. However, the jailed PTI founder cannot be released as he is languishing in the Adiala jail in cipher and another case related to his marriage with Bushra Bibi.

Imran Khan was arrested from Islamabad Higher Court premises by NAB in the Al-Qadir Trust corruption case a year ago.

The Al-Qadir University Project Trust (AQUPT) has been embroiled in a scandal that involves Imran Khan, his wife, Bushra Bibi, and two close aides, Zulfiqar Abbas Bukhari and Zaheer Ud Din Babar Awan.

As per Academia magazine, Khan, Bushra Bibi, Bukhari, and Awan created the trust with the aim of setting up the Al-Qadir University in Tehsil Sohawa District Jhelum, Punjab, to impart quality education.

The trust later signed a Memorandum of Understanding with a private company, Bahria Town, to receive donations from the latter, and Bahria Town allotted land measuring 458 Kanal, 4 Marla, 58 square feet to the trust.
