A car in Imran Khan’s convoy overturned on Saturday as the head of the Pakistan Justice Instigation (PTI) headed to Islamabad to appear in the Toshakhana case, ARY News reported.

Earlier today, Imran Khan departed for Islamabad from his Zaman Park residence in Lahore.

Ahead of Khan’s visit to the Judiciary Complex in Islamabad, the area was reportedly under tight security to maintain peace and order and prevent any unpleasant incidents.

On Friday, the Pakistani government moved the venue of the Toshakhana case from the Additional Sessions Court to a relatively safer judicial building to address Imran Khan’s safety, the Pakistan-based Dawn newspaper reported.

Mr Khan will appear before additional session judge Zafar Iqbal in the case of former prime minister Zafar Iqbal, after he routinely skipped court dates and issued a non-bailable arrest warrant after accusing his lawyer of a “security threat”.

On March 14, when the Islamabad police went to Lahore to arrest Imran Khan according to the court order, they encountered resistance; according to Geo News, more than 60 policemen in Islamabad and Punjab were injured as a result, and several PTI staff were also injured.

Meanwhile, Imran Khan was also released on protective bail from the Lahore High Court (LHC) for 9 cases.

Bail was granted in five cases in Islamabad and three in Lahore. Imran Khan was granted bail until March 27 in the case filed in Lahore, while protective bail was granted until March 24 in five cases in Islamabad.
