Former Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan, others acquitted in two vandalism cases


Islamabad: In a relief to embattled Imran Khan, a district and sessions court of Pakistan on Monday acquitted the jailed former prime minister and other leaders of his Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf party in two vandalism cases.

The court's verdict in the two cases related to vandalism during the March 2022 long march came during the hearing of acquittal pleas filed by the 71-year-old PTI founder and other politicians, Geo News reported.

Other party leaders acquitted include Zartaj Gul, Ali Nawaz Awan, Faisal Javed, Shah Mahmood Qureshi, Qasim Suri, Raja Khurram Nawaz, Shireen Mazari, Saifullah Niazi, Asad Umar and Awami Muslim League chief Sheikh Rashid Ahmad.

The cases against Khan and other politicians were registered at Kohsar and Karachi Company police stations for violation of Section 144 imposed by the authorities following the arrest of the former prime minister in a alleged corruption case.

Speaking to reporters here, Khan's lawyer Naeem Panjotha said the case against the PTI founder was based on political vengeance.

“No evidence of vandalism was found against the PTI founder during the long march,” he said, adding that the Islamabad administration had not issued any notification to enforce the section 144 in the capital.

Various cases of similar nature were registered against the PTI founder and he was acquitted in several cases relating to the long march, the lawyer added.

He also noted that other political leaders had been acquitted in vandalism cases.

The acquittal verdict of Khan, Qureshi, Rashid, Awan, Suri and Nawaz was given by Judicial Magistrate Shahzad Khan in a case registered at Kohsar police station.

The court had previously reserved its verdict in the Longue Marche vandalism case.

The development comes days after a district and sessions court on May 15 acquitted Khan in two cases relating to the May 9 vandalism.

Khan, the only removed prime minister, who remains behind bars in Adiala jail, and several other PTI leaders have faced various allegations in cases related to the violence that followed his arrest on May 9.

The Islamabad High Court on May 16 also approved the PTI founder's bail application as part of a ₹190 million out-of-court settlement with the National Crime Agency (NCA).
