Imran Khan, the former Prime Minister of Pakistan, appeared before an anti-terrorism court (ATC) in Lahore and was granted an extension of his pre-arrest bail until June 13 in three cases, including an attack on a military commander’s residence. Khan, aged 70, emphasized that he faces significant threats to his life.
Additionally, Khan appeared before the Lahore High Court to request an extension of his bail in the murder case of a Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) worker named Zille Shah. The Lahore High Court has extended his bail in this case until June 6.
During the proceedings at the ATC, Judge Ijaz Ahmad Buttar questioned Khan as to why he had not participated in the investigation regarding the attack on the Lahore Corps Commander House, commonly known as Jinnah House. Khan informed the judge that he was confronted with serious threats to his life.
