    “Pakistan Court Clears Ex-PM Imran Khan of Vandalism Charges from Anti-Government March”


    Former Pakistani PM Imran Khan Acquitted in Vandalism Cases During Anti-Government March

    In a significant development, former Prime Minister of Pakistan Imran Khan has been acquitted by a court in two cases related to vandalism during his anti-government march. The court’s decision comes as a relief to Khan, who is currently serving multiple sentences in other cases.

    The District and Sessions Court Judicial Magistrate Shaista Kundi accepted Khan’s petitions and acquitted him in cases registered at Islamabad’s Lohi Bhair and Sahala police stations. The acquittal was based on arguments presented by Khan’s lawyer, Advocate Naeem Panjotha, who highlighted procedural irregularities and lack of evidence in the cases.

    Panjotha argued that Khan had been framed in the cases without proper notification or information regarding the enforcement of a prohibitory order. He also pointed out that the Station House Officer (SHO), who filed the case, lacked jurisdiction to do so. Moreover, Panjotha emphasized the absence of witness statements in the cases against Khan.

    The court, after hearing the arguments, reserved the verdict and later announced the acquittal of Khan in the mentioned cases.

    Imran Khan’s legal battles have been ongoing, with him currently imprisoned in Rawalpindi’s Adiala Jail for various convictions, including the Toshakana case, un-Islamic marriage case, and the cipher cases.

    Khan’s anti-government march, launched in 2022 following his removal from power, aimed at demanding snap polls. However, the march was halted after an attempted assassination on Khan’s life.
