ISLAMABAD: An anti-terrorism court (ATC) on Wednesday summoned Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan on February 15 in a case related to violence during a sit-in the federal capital in 2014.

ATC Judge Shahrukh Arjumand, while hearing cases against the PTI and Pakistan Awami Tehreek leadership regarding the attack on the state-run television building, parliament and the then Islamabad SSP Operations Asmatullah Junejo, summoned Imran on Feb 15 in the Junejo attack case and on Feb 26 in the remaining cases.

At present, Imran is out on bail in the case. Earlier in the day, the court approved the interim bail of PTI leader Shah Mehmood Qureshi in all the cases.

Qureshi, who appeared in the court for the first time, was ordered to pay a surety bond worth Rs 100,000.

The court is hearing four cases pertaining to violence, including destroying property in the Red Zone, attacking the state TV channel’s building and injuring then SSP Operations Asmatullah Junejo during the 2014 protest.

Both Qureshi and PTI chairman Imran Khan are named in all four cases. PAT chief Tahirul Qadri and workers of both parties are also named in the cases.
