LHC Rejects Imran's Request To Restrain Police From Zaman Park Action
The Lahore High Court has rejected PTI chairman Imran Khan's request to bar a possible police action at his Zaman Park residence.

A five-member led by Justice Ali Baqar Najafi heard the plea seeking directives to the authorities against any coercive measures related to the 121 FIRs, on Tuesday

During the hearing, the LHC barred Punjab police from "harassing" Imran, and instructed them to ensure that the former premier receives a treatment as per the law.

A day earlier, the PTI chief told LHC that he worries the government may conduct a new “operation” at his Zaman Park residence over the Eid-ul-Fitr vacations in an effort to detain him.

He expressed his worries to the court during a hearing on his demand for information regarding the cases filed against him across the nation.

Imran's lawyer, Barrister Salman Safdar, informed the court that the state apparatus is being used against his client. He pleaded with the court to halt the filing of FIRs against his client.

“Everything has a limit, and in all cases, the police are the complainant,” Safdar remarked, citing the Wazirabad incident and the Zile Shah case, in which the police was the complainant.

On Sunday, PTI chairman claimed that PTI social media activists are being ‘abducted’ and bogus FIRs are being registered against them.

According to him, there is a law of the jungle in ‘Hamara Pakistan’, referring to the term recently used by Army Chief General Asim Munir. He claimed that law enforcement agencies are taking action against his party workers while complying with the directives given by ‘higher authorities.’

The PTI chief claimed that even the people who are providing food to the party workers staying at his Lahore residence, Zaman Park, are being ‘picked up’ and ‘terrorised’.
