ISLAMABAD: An anti-terrorism court (ATC) exempted Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan from appearing in court for the hearing of the PTV and parliament attack case on Thursday.
ATC judge Kausar Abbas Zaidi heard the case.
The court, while approving the request for exemption, adjourned the hearing till indefinite period. The judge remarked that the next date for the hearing will be announced later.
On Aug 31, 2014, anti-government protesters from PTI and Pakistan Awami Tehreek (PAT) clashed with police while marching towards parliament and Prime Minister’s House.
The clash resulted in the deaths of three participants of the sit-ins. Hundreds, including demonstrators and police officials, were wounded.
The transmission of PTV News and PTV World was cut off for almost half an hour before the Pakistan Army cleared the building.
