The Supreme Court of Pakistan has ordered the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) to present Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan within one hour. This order came during a hearing of a petition lodged by PTI that challenged Imran’s arrest by NAB from the Islamabad High Court on Tuesday in the Al-Qadir Trust case. Chief Justice Umar Ata Bandial criticised the manner in which Imran was arrested and stated that no one can sabotage a person’s right to surrender in front of the court. Following Imran’s arrest, several PTI leaders were also arrested. This led to protests across major cities, resulting in many incidents of violence. Punjab police have arrested over 1,000 people in connection to the protests. Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif condemned the protests and warned that strict action would be taken against “state’s enemies” who are ransacking public properties and state installations.
