PTI chief Imran Khan is expected to arrive at noon an Anti Terrorism Court hearing in Islamabad today in connection with him passing controversial remarks regarding female sessions court judge Zeba Chaudhry and the capital city police.

Khan will arrive in response to summons issued to him by the court. He had obtained pre-arrest bail in the case till September 1 (today).

The proceedings will be conducted by ATC judge Raja Jawad Abbas Hassan.

Speaking outside the court premises, PTI counsel Babar Awan said that the party has submitted two written responses to the court.

“I told the court that if anything happens to my client, the government, IG, DIG Islamabad will be responsible,” he said.

“They are withdrawing security from Khan sahab, and moreover, no police from any province can be present with him here,” Awan said.

He said that he has submitted a threat letter to the court, received at Bani Gala, which stated the intention of some people to want to kill the PTI chairman.

Awan said that the court remarked that Khan should appear before it, to which the counsel told the court: “It’s not as if Imran Khan is at Mayfair. He is in Bani Gala. I will bring him here at 12.”
