ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan became part of the investigation in the four cases against him on Wednesday.
Khan's legal counsel Shahid Naseem Gondal submitted his client's written statement to the Secretariat Police Station in Islamabad.
Imran became part of the investigat ion as per orders of the anti-terrorism court (ATC).
The PTI chief had appeared before an ATC hearing four cases against him on Tuesday and surrendered himself before the ATC, which had issued non-bailable warrants against Khan and declared him a proclaimed offender after he had not appeared in a single hearing.
The ATC had approved the PTI chairman's bail for Rs200,000 in each case and adjourned the hearing until November 24.
Speaking to the media on November 14, Khan had said that the party had peacefully protested [in 2014] for transparent elections but a terrorism case had been lodged against it.
T he ATC court is hearing three cases regarding the attack on the then Islamabad Operations SSP Asmatullah Junejo and state buildings during the 2014 protest sit-in by PTI and Pakistan Awami Tehreek (PAT).
The two 'political cousins', Imran and PAT chief Tahirul Qadri, face charges of destroying property in the Red Zone, attacking the state TV channel's building and injuring SSP Junejo.
In August 2014, violence broke out in the federal capital when PTI and PAT supporters attempted to break a police cordon and storm the PM House, using cranes to remove barricades.
The clashes between police and protesters resulted in the deaths of three people and caused injuries to over 560. Of the injured, 77 were security officials deployed in the Red Zone, including SSP Junejo.
The decision to march to the PM House was taken after talks between the government, PTI and PAT had failed to end the deadlock over the resignation of the then prime minister Nawaz Shar if.
The two parties were protesting 'rigging' in the 2013 General Elections.Advertisement
