Khan is going to approach an anti-terrorism court (ATC) in person on Aug 25 for bail in the terrorism case registered against him by the Shehbaz led ‘selected’ government.
Last week, a first investigation report (FIR) was registered against the PTI chairman at the Margalla police station under Section 7 of the Anti-Terrorism Act (punishment for acts of terrorism) regarding his comments at the party’s Islamabad rally on Aug 20.
