On Monday, a division bench of the Balochistan High Court (BHC) postponed arrest warrants and quashed an FIR filed against the PTI chairman.
A high court bench comprising Chief Justice Naeem Akhtar Afghan and Justice Gul Hassan Tareen stayed the non-bailable warrant issued by Judicial Magistrate-I and dismissed the ‘hate speech’ FIR filed against the former Prime Minister at Bijli Ghar police station here.
The PTI attorneys had contested the arrest warrant and FIR in the Balochistan High Court.
A non-bailable arrest warrant had been issued by Judicial Magistrate-I against the former prime minister.
The FIR was filed when a resident of Nawa Killi filed a complaint at the province capital’s Bijli Road police station.
