Imran secures bail in 2014 PTV attack cases, claims innocence Jan 03, 2018 0 51 12345 Islamabad: An anti-terrorism court (ATC) in Islamabad on Tuesday accepted Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) chief Imran's bail appeal in all four cases regarding an attack on Pakistan Television (PTV) headquarters in 2014. ATC judge Shahrukh Arjumand, hearing Khan's appeal, granted him bail."The decision proves that I am sadiq (truthful) and ameen (righteous), not a terrorist,"Imran Khan told the media outside the court after the ruling."I am a ladla [darling] of the law because I abide by it,"said the PTI chief, taking another opportunity to aim at Nawaz Sharif and his"lack of transparency"."Nawaz Sharif could not have withstood half of the scrutiny that I went through,"Khan added, referring to the trial against him in the Supreme Court in which he was acquitted last year."There are cases against me because I am holding them [Sharifs] accountable,"he claimed, adding,"I've never stolen anything in my life."During the hearing, Khan's lawyer Babar Awan had tried to convince the court that PTI chief should not be named in the case, arguing that he was not named in the statements by the police officials that were attacked back in 2014.
