ISLAMABAD: The Islamabad High Court has summoned the Director General and Prosecutor of the National Accountability Bureau after former prime minister Imran Khan’s arrest from the high court premises, ARY News reported on Tuesday.

Chief Justice IHC Aamer Farooq summoned the DG NAB and the Prosecutor General within half hour. The chief justice put off hearing of the case after half hour.

Justice Farooq directed the govt to inform court immediately who was behind the arrest and in what case has Imran been arrested in.

Chief Justice after resumption of the hearing questioned the absence of the interior secretary.

Chief Justice remarked that the arrest has been made in an attack on the high court. “The institution branch of the high court vandalized,” he said.

Additional Attorney General said,” There would have more resistance if he was arrested outside”. He said the NAB is an impartial institution. “The NAB is impartial, the Rangers has been under the interior ministry,” chief justice said. “Federal government could not escape from its responsibilities,” the top judge said. “I will shut eyes and keep silent over the illegal act, the law has been clear over arrests.”
