ISLAMABAD: Former Prime Minister Imran Khan received bail on Friday in 10 cases reported against him for vandalism and arson during the party’s ‘Azadi March’ last month.

The PTI president went to court seeking bail in cases filed at various police stations in the state capital.

Earlier this month, he was granted bail until his arrest by June 25 in cases filed against him by the High Court in Peshawar (PHC).

PHC Chief Judge Qaiser Rasheed Khan, after hearing the arguments of the applicant’s lawyer Babar Awan, accepted Imran Khan’s request and granted his bail before his arrest with a bail of Rs 50,000.

The orders were forwarded to the judge for additional sessions in Islamabad and he was instructed to appear before the court for sessions in Islamabad before 25 June.

On the eve of today’s arrival of Imran Khan in court, strict security arrangements were made where he appeared along with his lawyer Babar Awan. The judge of the session, Kamran Basharat Mufti, heard the request for bail.

Accepting his guilt, the court granted Imran Khan bail of Rs 5,000 until July 6 and ordered police to present all relevant records at the next hearing.

Cases have been filed against PTI leaders at police stations in Aapbara, I-9, Kohsar, Karachi Company, Golra, Tarnol and the Secretariat.

PTI leaders were charged with vandalism during last month’s ‘Azadi March’ which abruptly ended after violent clashes between police and party supporters on May 25, after which several police officers lost their lives.

On May 26, Imran Khan announced the end of the march on Islamabad.
