Lahore: An anti-terrorism court (ATC) on Saturday granted interim bail to former prime minister Imran Khan’s interim bail in three terrorism cases.
The court directed the PTI chief to deposit Rs 500,000 as surety bond each and put off further hearing till April 4.
As the hearing commenced, Imran Khan personally appeared before the court along with his legal team. The counsels representing the PTI Chairman contended that the terrorism cases were being registered against him at regular intervals.
He asked the court to allow him permission to appear before it via video link.
The judge summoned records of all three cases in the next hearing and directed him to ensure his presence in every hearing.

Khan regretted that the people were dying in the long queues at the flour distribution points in the country, adding that the city was looking like occupied Kashmir due to containers and barricades on the roads.
