Imran Khan appears in court, arrest warrant dropped

Islamabad: The arrest warrant against former Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan has been dropped after he appeared in court. He has skipped several hearings which led to the legal move.

"The court has cancelled the arrest warrant after marking Imran Khan's attendance. The hearing has been adjourned till March 30," said his lawyer Gohar Khan to AFP. Khan today travelled over 300 km from Lahore to Islamabad to appear before the court. He was unable to get out of the car but the court accepted his attendance. He has been citing security reasons for not appearing in court.

The 70-year-old was ousted from power in a no-confidence motion last year. When the police tried to arrest him yesterday, around 4,000 of his supporters mobbed the complex and pelted bricks. The police had to use tear gas.

Khan is accused of not declaring gifts received during his time as premier, or the profit made from selling them. He claims that the new government wants him in jail so that he is unable to campaign for upcoming elections.
