Imran Khan granted bail by anti-terrorism court in Pakistan


An anti-terrorism court in Islamabad has granted bail to Pakistan’s former Prime Minister Imran Khan in eight cases related to violence at the court complex in March of this year. The bail is valid until June 8. Khan’s wife, Bushra Bibi, was also granted protective bail until May 31 in a corruption case by the National Accountability Bureau court in Islamabad. Khan claims he is facing nearly 150 legal cases against him since he was removed from power in April last year. He will be appearing before another NAB court in Rawalpindi later in the day. The couple is accused of accepting the gift of property to build a private university in exchange for providing benefits to a real estate tycoon. Khan denies the charge, saying he and his wife were not involved in any wrongdoing.
