Pakistan’s former prime minister Imran Khan appeared before the Lahore High Court on Tuesday which confirmed his pre-arrest bail in connection with the murder of a worker of his Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) party. In March, the Punjab Police booked Khan, accusing him of “concealing facts and evidence” about the death of Ali Bilal alias Zille Shah, a party worker. Khan’s counsel told the court that Shah was tortured to death in police custody as the post-mortem report showed 26 injury marks on his body. However, the police booked Khan and other PTI members for the murder.
