Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chief Imran Khan’s CCTV footage reportedly stolen

Former Prime Minister of Pakistan and PTI chief Imran Khan’s CCTV footage of his arrest on May 9 has reportedly been stolen from the Islamabad High Court, a day after the Supreme Court of Pakistan declared his arrest ‚illegal‘.

Details of the incident

The Dawn News reported that the footage was stolen from the court premises, following which Justice Miangul Hassan expressed his concern over the lack of security. On Friday, the Islamabad High Court granted bail to the former PM for two weeks, stating that he cannot be arrested from May 9 to May 17. Justice Mian Gul Hassan was one of the judges of the division bench that heard and ruled on the PTI chief’s bail plea on Friday.

CCTV footage missing

All CCTV footage from May 9, including Imran Khan seated in the Biometrics room and the Pakistan Rangers breaking in through the windows, is reportedly stolen. The administration of the Islamabad High Court informed the judges that the whole CCTV system from the control room has been stolen and no official footage exists with the IHC. The only footage available is from mobile phones at the time of the arrest.

Arrest details

Imran Khan was arrested outside the Islamabad High Court by Pakistan Rangers on a warrant issued by the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) in the Al-Qadir Trust case. The Rangers broke the windows of the bio-metrics room while Imran was present there and dragged him out of the court. According to reports, he was visibly made to crawl when the Rangers held him by the neck and dragged him towards a police vehicle.

The judges slammed the court administration when they were informed that the CCTV footage was stolen.
