Election Commission of Pakistan issues arrest warrant against Imran Khan

Imran Khan, the legendary cricketer and the founder of PTI (Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf) has been issued a non-bailable warrant by the election commission of Pakistan.

Talking to reporters, PTI leader Naeemul Haq said that the issuance of the arrest warrant of Imran Khan is a condemnable act, adding that the decision will be challenged in the Islamabad High Court (IHC). This warrant has been issued for failing to appear in the court repeatedly and not giving a written justification or apology to the court for not appearing despite various letters.

Akbar S Babar, a former PTI leader, had filed the case with the ECP seeking Imran Khan's disqualification over allegations that his party was receiving funds from foreign sources.

It was discovered that on September 14, the ECP has issued a bailable arrest warrant against Imran Khan after his failure to present himself for the proceedings.

On Thursday, Advocate Shahid Gondil told the court that the case, pertaining to the ECP's jurisdiction to hear the plea, was pending in the Islamabad High Court (IHC). "We will also look into whether this is contempt of the IHC's full bench or not, and then (the party) we will challenge it".

The documents - detailing bank transactions in connection with Khan's assets and accounts of his offshore company, Niazi Services Ltd - are not verified and have been submitted very late in the case, Abbasi argued in his petition, submitted separately with his reply in the case.
