* Transit Bail given on Rs50,000 guarantee
* Babar Awan represented former prime minister Imran Khan
* 14 FIRS registered against Imran Khan
PESHAWAR: The Peshawar High Court on Thursday gave transit bail to former prime minister Imran Khan till June 25.
The Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf counsel Babar Awan informed PHC Chief Justice Qaisar Rasheed that as many as 14 FIRs have been registered against his client. The court gave him the trasit bill on the guarantee of Rs50,000.
The chief justice directed PTI chief to not address media outside courtroom.
Imran Khan, earlier, on Wednesday said the establishment needed to take the right decisions now.
“I need nothing. It is a matter of the country and establishment. If the country is ruined, our armed forces would also be affected. When Pakistan will go bankrupt, the institute which would be most affected is army,” Imran Khan said talking to Bol news channel anchor Sami Ibrahim in his programme ‘Tajzia Sami Ibrahim Kay Sath’.
Imran asserted that he had no full power to run the country despite he was responsible for everything.
To a question, the former prime minister said there was no question of going back to the assembly in the opposition. If they went back, it would mean that they had accepted the conspiracy, he maintained.
He said first of all the US cypher should be investigated through which conspiracy against his government was hatched. He said he was waiting for the Supreme Court’s verdict, on the petition regarding permission for protests, before announcing date for another long march.
Comparing the Pakistan Muslim League-N (PML-N) with a mafia, which either makes people to support them or they remove them from their path, he said they did such things which did not take place even in dictatorship.
“Which country does such a thing with its residents. They brutally murdered unarmed people in the Model Town incident. They were supposed to be punished by the court but they would get stay order every time,” he said
