The Islamabad High Court on Wednesday approved the bail plea of ​​Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) founder Imran Khan in the context of the £190 million National Crime Agency (NCA) settlement. A two-member bench of IHC comprising Chief Justice Aamir Farooq and Justice Tariq Mehmood Jahangiri had reserved its verdict on the bail plea a day earlier. The IHC, in its short order today, ordered the authorities to release the PTI founder on a bail bond of Rs 1 million.

The court delivered the summary judgment orally in open court, although a detailed order will be issued later. Ousted Prime Minister Khan was ousted from power in April 2022 through a no-confidence motion by the opposition, facing multiple charges ranging from corruption to terrorism since his removal as prime minister. He has been behind bars since August last year after being sentenced in the Toshakhana case and subsequently convicted in other cases including cipher and illegal marriage cases.

Due to his conviction in his other cases, the former Prime Minister will remain behind bars despite winning relief in the amount of £190 million.
