Lahore: Pakistan’s former prime minister Imran Khan has been found “guilty of inciting attacks” on military installations, including the Lahore Corps Commander House, an anti-terrorism court was told by the government prosecutor on Friday.
However, the ATC Lahore extended Imran Khan’s pre-arrest bail in five terrorism cases till August 8.
“A special prosecutor on Friday told the ATC that a Joint Investigation Team (JIT) of Punjab police completed its probe into the May 9 attacks on military and state buildings and found Imran Khan guilty of abetment and other terrorism charges,” a court official told PTI.
Mr Khan appeared before the court amid high security.
Prosecutor Farhad Ali Shah said that Mr Khan is guilty of masterminding the May 9 attacks and his arrest is needed for collection of evidence.
He said that the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf chief had led a campaign and incited the party workers against the Army before the May 9 attacks. That incitement led to the attack on the military installations, he said.
ATC Judge Abher Gul Khan extended the pre-arrest bail of Mr Khan till August 8 and directed the prosecutor to come up with more arguments on the next hearing.
