Imran Khan is now out on bail concerning the Parliament attack case. President Arif Alvi, Federal Ministers Shah Mehmood Qureshi, Pervez Khattak, Asad Umar, Shafqat Mehmood, Provincial Minister Aleem Khan and Jahangir Tareen have also been named as accused in the case.
It should be noted that in August 2014, the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf (PTI) and the Pakistan Awami Tehreek (PAT) staged a sit-in against alleged rigging in the general elections. During which activists from both parties broke through police barricades, tried to break into the Prime Minister’s House, and allegedly attacked PTV. The police officers and protesters on Constitution Avenue, in the clash between 50 PTI and PAT protesters, were reportedly injured in the attack, including Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP) Asmat Ullah Junejo.
Islamabad police registered cases against Imran Khan, Tahir-ul-Qadri, Arif Alvi, Asad Umar, Shah Mehmood Qureshi, Shafqat Mehmood and Raja Khurram Nawaz Gandapur in all these cases, including anti-terrorism provisions.
