LAHORE: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan has submitted surety bonds for three cases at an anti-terrorism court and one case at the Lahore High Court (LHC) on Tuesday.

The three cases at the ATC are related to the incidents of arson that occurred on May 9 — the day he was arrested by the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) from the premises of the Islamabad High Court.

Three bonds worth Rs100,000, which were submitted to the ATC on behalf of Advocate Habib, were approved by ATC Judge Ijaz Ahmed Buttar.

The anti-terrorism court had already approved Khan’s pre-arrest bail on May 19 in the three cases — one of which pertains to the attack on Corps Commander House in Lahore — till June 2.

After ATC, for the fourth case, Khan went to the LHC for submitting surety bonds. The case pertains to the distortion and hiding of evidence about the alleged murder of a PTI worker — Zille Shah.

The LHC too had already granted Khan pre-arrest bail in the case till June 2.

Prior to Khan's arrival at the ATC, a petition was filed before ATC Judge Abhar Gul Khan requesting permission for Khan's vehicle to enter the court premises.

The petition cited the "danger" to the PTI chief’s life as the reason for the request.

Subsequently, permission was granted and a car with jammers along with other security vehicles left Zaman Park for the court.
