The Lahore High Court has demanded a comprehensive report from the Punjab government on all 121 cases registered against Imran Khan, the Chairman of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI), by May 10. The hearing of a petition filed by the former Prime Minister seeking an order to stop action on all the cases against him was heard by a larger bench headed by Justice Ali Baqar Najafi.

During the hearing, the bench directed the provincial government to submit details of cases in which Khan was wanted to the police. Justice Najafi remarked that if Khan was innocent, the cases should be discharged against him, but if he was involved in criminal activity, a challan must be submitted against him.

Khan’s lawyer stated that the joint investigation team (JIT) was given access to the PTI chief as they interrogated him in various cases. However, when Justice Najafi inquired if the JIT had submitted its report, the government lawyer said it was yet to be received. The judge remarked that it seemed the government had not taken the court orders seriously.

The public prosecutor replied that orders will be complied with, and the hearing on Khan’s petitions was adjourned until May 12.

This development marks yet another legal challenge for Imran Khan, who has been embroiled in multiple legal cases since taking office as Prime Minister in 2018. These cases include charges of money laundering, misuse of authority, and failure to declare assets.

The demand for a detailed report on all cases against Khan is a significant development in the ongoing legal battles, as it will shed light on the nature of the charges against the PTI chief. It remains to be seen how the Punjab government will respond to this latest order from the Lahore High Court.
