A repentant Imran Khan on Friday landed at the court of judicial magistrate Zeba Chaudhry.
Police told the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chairman that she was on leave after locking her room. “I had come to apologise to judicial magistrate Zeba Chaudhry,” Khan told court staff.
“Tell Madam Zeba Chaudhry I visited and wanted to apologise if my remarks had hurt her sentiments,” he said. He then left the premises.
The PTI chairman had earlier submitted a 19-page reply to the Islamabad High Court (IHC) in connection with hurling threats at Chaudhry during a show of power in the federal capital. He had expressed remorse over his actions in the response.
Separately, an Islamabad district and sessions court confirmed Imran’s interim bail in a case registered against him for violating Section 144. The PTI chief had called a rally in Islamabad on August 20, 2022. An FIR was consequently lodged against him for violating the aforementioned section banning public gatherings exceeding four individuals.
