Former Pakistani Prime Minister and Chairman of the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) party Imran Khan has appeared in court relating to a case about Toshakhana, or the federal treasury. The PTI leader had voiced concerns about being barred from entering the court, as he believes the government is seeking to prevent him from doing so. The Islamabad Police have also alleged that PTI activists have been throwing stones at law enforcement officers, and according to Aaj News, a police checkpoint was set on fire by protesters. In a tweet, Islamabad Police stated that protesters were “shelling the judicial complex”. The court proceedings pertain to a plea by the Election Commission of Pakistan which alleges that Khan failed to adequately disclose details of gifts given to him in Toshakhana. The Islamabad administration imposed Section 144 of the Pakistani Criminal Procedure Code prohibiting private companies, security guards, or individuals from carrying weapons, while this venue was moved to a safer complex due to concerns about security.
