ATC orders seizure of Imran Khan, Tahirul Qadri's assets after no-shows in terrorism case

Posted In: News Date:Jul 14th, 2017

An Anti-Terrorism Court (ATC) in Islamabad on Friday issued orders for the seizure of properties belonging to Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan and Pakistan Awami Tehreek (PAT) chief Tahirul Qadri after the two repeatedly failed to appear in hearings of terrorism cases registered against them.

The ATC also issued notices to this effect to the relevant police stations and revenue boards.

On February 3, an ATC had issued perpetual warrants of arrest against Khan and Qadri in a case related to an attack on a senior police officer during the 2014 dharna which paralysed Islamabad.
