In a developing legal saga, PTI Chairman Imran Khan has been summoned to appear before a court in Islamabad today for a case related to his alleged ‘un-Islamic’ marriage with Bushra Bibi. However, the Attock Jail officials, where Imran Khan is currently detained in a high-profile cypher case, have expressed concerns over his appearance, citing security risks. This unusual situation has raised questions about the legal proceedings and the safety of the former premier.

The Attock Jail superintendent, in a letter addressed to Civil Judge Qudratullah, responsible for hearing the ‘un-Islamic’ marriage case, pointed out that Imran Khan is a high-profile under-trial prisoner facing charges in the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) Counter Terrorism Wing’s (CTW) cypher case, filed under the Official Secrets Act. The letter stressed that Special Court Judge Abual Hasnat Zulqarnain was already conducting the trial inside the prison premises, making it challenging for Imran Khan to appear in the ‘un-Islamic’ marriage case.

Despite the concerns raised by Attock Jail officials, sources from the police department maintain that Imran Khan is expected to be produced before Judge Qudratullah to address the ‘un-Islamic’ marriage allegations. They have also pledged to provide a list of police personnel assigned to ensure Imran Khan’s security during his court appearance, along with the number plates of Islamabad police vehicles responsible for transporting him to the court.

The sources further disclosed that the interior ministry has been informed about these proposed security measures to facilitate Imran Khan’s appearance in the Islamabad court. Pending final instructions, the police are prepared to promptly implement these measures to ensure the PTI chief’s safe and secure participation in the legal proceedings.

As this legal episode unfolds, it highlights the delicate balance between legal obligations and security concerns, particularly when dealing with a high-profile figure like Imran Khan. The case underscores the unique challenges faced by law enforcement and judicial authorities in ensuring that justice is served while safeguarding the safety and well-being of all involved parties.
