Police allowed to search Zaman ParkArchive
LAHORE: The Lahore High Court on Friday allowed a request of Punjab IGP Dr Usman Anwar to search the Zaman Park residence of PTI Chairman Imran Khan for investigation into attacks on police teams when they went there to execute warrants issued by an Islamabad court for Mr Khan’s arrest in the Toshakhana case.
Justice Tariq Saleem Sheikh of LHC also ordered Mr Khan’s counsel to cooperate with the police investigation team.
Mr Khan’s counsel Azhar Siddique requested the court to allow only the investigating officer to visit the Zaman Park.
Justice Sheikh observed that police were stopped from the execution of the warrants, which reflected that there was no writ of the state. He then directed the IGP to send only the investigating team to Mr Khan’s residence for investigation.
