An anti-terrorism court (ATC) in Lahore declared Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman and EX PM Imran Khan’s Zaman Park home search warrant “ineffective” on Tuesday.
ATC Judge Abhar Gul Khan reserved his decision on the PTI chief’s petition, saying that one-time search orders are not indefinite.
Commissioner Lahore, DC Lahore, and other authorities appeared before ATC judge Abhar Gull’s court as the hearings began.
The former prime minister had petitioned Lahore’s anti-terrorism court to dismiss search warrants for his Zaman Park mansion.
In the plea, Imran Khan listed the state, Lahore commissioner, DIG operations Lahore, SSP operations Lahore, and others as respondents.
Imran Khan claimed in his petition that the search warrants were obtained with malicious intent by law enforcement personnel.
“I respectfully request that the search warrant relating to petitioner’s house in Zaman Park, Lahore, which lacks the requisite legal parameters for a valid warrant, be set aside in the interest of justice and fair play,” he stated in his application.
It is worth noting that the police acquired a search order for Imran Khan’s Zaman Park property from the ATC on May 18.
