Imran acquitted in two cases of vandalism

Cases were registered against PTI founder in Islamabad during his party's long march.

ISLAMABAD: A judicial magistrate on Tuesday acquitted PTI founder and former prime minister Imran Khan in two cases of vandalism.

The cases were registered against him and his party workers in Loi Bher and Sihala police stations of Islamabad during the PTI’s long march.

The applications seeking acquittal in the cases were taken up by judge Shaista Kundi. The lawyers of the PTI founder Naeem Panjotha and Sardar Masroof appeared in the court and pleaded for permission to produce Imran Khan in the court.

However, the judge rejected the plea saying due to security concerns the former prime minister cannot be brought to the court from the Adiala jail.

Judge Kundi after hearing the arguments of the lawyers reserved her judgement and later announced it, acquitting Imran Khan in both the cases.
