In the petition, Imran Khan noted that he has served as prime minister of the country and was the captain of Pakistan team that won the World Cup.
“Efforts were made to establish peace in the country while US withdrawal from Afghanistan was ensured,” the former premier said, adding that the PTI-led government took measures to cope with economic issues amid the coronavirus pandemic.
He pointed out that the government had registered a terrorism case against him on a statement about Inspector-General of Police (IGP), Deputy Inspector-General (DIG) and a female magistrate.
