PTI Chairman Imran Khan transferred to Adiala Jail


ISLAMABAD, Sep 26 (DNA): Islamabad Police took PTI Chairman Imran Khan from Attock Jail to Adiala Jail on Tuesday, following the orders of the Islamabad High Court.

The police convoy consisted of 15 vehicles, including two armoured

vehicles and one ambulance with doctors and paramedical staff.

The transfer was carried out under strict security measures to ensure

the safety of the PTI chairman, who is facing charges of terrorism on

May 9 and corruption.

Imran Khan is shifted to Adiala Jail from Attock Jail on the orders of

Islamabad High Court Chief Justice Aamer Farooq passed yesterday


During the case proceedings yesterday, Chief Justice Farooq remarked

that the under-trial prisoners of Islamabad were kept in Adiala Jail.

IHC Chief Justice said the PTI chairman was transferred to Attock Jail

before his sentence (in the Toshakhana case) was suspended. But now

Imran’s sentence in the case has been suspended and he is an undertrial

prisoner now, the judge observed.

“According to law, the undertrial prisoners of Islamabad are kept in

Adiala Jail. Transfer him to Adiala Prison,” the chief justice ordered,

inquiring further which class was given to the former premier. He said

that the court was told that the A and B classes had been abolished in

the jail facility.

The chief justice remarked that the PTI chairman deserved a better class

as he was the former prime minister of the country. He said that Imran

Khan was an educated person.

Interestingly, in a surprising turn of events, before transferring from

Attock Jail to Adiala Jail, PTI Chairman Imran Khan submitted an appeal

to the court not to move him from Attock Jail to Adiala Jail and

withdrawn his previous application to shift to Adiala Jail.

The sources said PTI Chairman Imran Khan told the court that he wants to

continue his stay in Attock Jail instead of moving to Adiala Jail, as he

had previously requested.

PTI Chairman Imran Khan who is registered as a Prisoner Number 804 in

Attock Jail also told the court that he is more comfortable in Attock

Jail and does not want to change his location.

On the instructions of Imran Khan, his lawyers submitted a new

application regarding not to transfer the PTI chairman from Attock Jail

to Adiala Jail. But, before any decision on this appeal, he has been

shifted to Adiala Jail.
