ISLAMABAD: An Islamabad accountability court Tuesday sought details from the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) if a notification had been issued for a jail hearing of the Al-Qadir Trust case against former prime minister and PTI chief Imran Khan.
Khan was first arrested in the Al-Qadir Trust case on May 9, which led to violent protests countrywide. He was released two days later after the apex court deemed his arrest unlawful. In August, Imran Khan was jailed after he was convicted in the Toshakhana case. Later his sentence was suspended on Aug 29 but he remained in jail because he was on judicial remand in the cipher case.
While Imran Khan is already imprisoned in Adiala Jail in the cipher case, he was also put under arrest yesterday (Monday) by the NAB in the Al-Qadir Trust and the Toshakhana case.
About jail trial, the judge observed that if a notification for the same had been issued, the hearing would be held in Adiala jail.
