Khan, 69, was charged with terrorism for remarks made at a public rally on August 20 against police officials and a female judge who had ordered the arrest of one of his top aides, Shahbaz Gill.

In his speech, the head of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) party, had allegedly threatened “action” by taking legal recourse against top Islamabad police officials and Judge Zeba Chaudhry, who had approved Gill’s two-day detention.

The cricketing icon-turned-politician denied he threatened the officials in his speech, saying his words were taken out of context.
