Pakistan: JIT to probe cases against PTI Chief Imran Khan


In Pakistan, a high-level Joint Investigation Team (JIT) has been formed to look into four cases filed against Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf Chairman Imran Khan and his supporters for allegedly attacking courts and law enforcement, committing vandalism, and obstructing the operation of the court.

The JIT is spearheaded by Additional Inspector General of Police Special Branch Punjab Zulfiqar Hameed, comprising representatives of Inter-Services Intelligence, Intelligence Bureau, Military Intelligence, and DIG Headquarters Islamabad Awais Ahmad.

Interior Minister Rana Sanaullah said that the JIT has been given the responsibility of looking into the cases and that it will finish its inquiries in 14 days and submit a challan to the courts.

Notably, the supporters of the PTI forced their way into the judicial complex recently, broke down the main gate, and vandalised the courts. Later, the Islamabad police filed an FIR, including terrorism charges, against Khan and dozens of PTI leaders.
