Pakistan’s Supreme Court bars ex-Prime Minister Jan from being detained until August 9 in murder case

July 24 (EUROPA PRESS) –

The Supreme Court of Pakistan on Monday prohibited the detention of former Prime Minister Imran Khan until August 9 in a case related to the murder of lawyer Abdul Razzaq Shar, who was shot to death on June 6 in Quetta while on his way to the Balochistan High Court.

The current government of Pakistan and the party chaired by Jan, the Pakistan Tehrik-e-Insaf (PTI) have accused each other of being behind this murder. Attaula Tarar, an aide to Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif, accused Khan of ordering Shar’s assassination to evade responsibility for him in a case of high treason.

For his part, PTI spokesman Raoof Hassan accused Prime Minister Sharif and Interior Minister Rana Sanaulá of being behind the murder, according to the Pakistani newspaper ‘Dawn’.

After the attack, Shar’s family filed a complaint against Jan, who has finally managed to stop his arrest after appealing to the Supreme Court. However, he must appear in court on August 9.
