He said although these cases are fake, he has to join the investigation and for that purpose, he is applying for a pre-arrest bail, a court official told media after the hearing. “While granting him pre-arrest bail till April 4, the judge directed Mr Khan to appear in every hearing of the court. He also asked Mr Khan not to bring a large number of his supporters to the court,” the official said. “If such a large number of people accompany you in the court next time, I will not hear the case,” the judge told Khan.
