Maryam Nawaz responds harshly to Imran Khan acquittal from ATC Court
*ISLAMABAD: Maryam Nawaz, the daughter of former premier Nawaz Sharif, on Friday said Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan may have been acquitted in a case pertaining to torture of then SSP Islamabad (Operations) Asmatullah Junejo during the 2014 sit-ins in Islamabad on “orders from the top”.*
She was replying to a question about the PTI chief’s acquittal on the premises of the accountability court in the federal capital.
When asked about his reaction to his political opponent’s acquittal, the PML-N Quaid Nawaz Sharif said people who don’t deserve to be set free are acquitted here while those having done nothing are made to appear in court.
An anti-terrorism court allowed today the PTI chief’s application filed under section 265-K of the Criminal Procedure Code (CrPC) seeking to acquit him in the case for lack of evidence.
Expressing happiness after being exonerated from terror charges, Imran Khan decried illegal use of the laws of the land to achieve political gains.
