ISLAMABAD: The Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) today issued an arrest warrant for Imran Khan in a contempt of court case.
The warrant was issued after the petitioner’s lawyer argued before the commission that the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chief had to appear before ECP but he kept ignoring the directions.
On the other hand, Imran’s counsel told the commission that the case pertaining to the contempt of court would be heard in the larger bench of the high court.
“He [Imran] will appear before the larger bench court today,” Babar Awan, who defends Imran Khan, said.
He further maintained that Khan was unable to appear before the ECP because he was out of the country.
