Imran meets his wife in Attock jail

Bushra Bibi reached Attock after permission from Islamabad High Court to meet her jailed spouse.

ATTOCK: Bushra Bibi Thursday met her husband and Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan in Attock jail for the first time after he got arrested on August 5 in connection with the Toshakhana case. 

Bushra Bibi, along with the former prime minister’s lawyers, reached the Attock jail where she was allowed to meet Khan. 

The one-to-one meeting between the two went on for about an hour without the ex-first lady’s legal team.

However, lawyers Naeem Panjotha, Sher Afzal Marwat and Ali Ijaz Buttar did not get permission to visit the deposed prime minister who was removed from power via a parliamentary vote in April last year. 

According to Panjotha, Bushra Bibi had gotten permission to meet Khan from the Islamabad High Court (IHC).

The legal team could not get permission to meet the PTI chairman despite showing court orders, said sources. They added that the lawyers remained outside the jail. 

Khan’s wife left for Lahore after their meeting, the sources said.
