Judicial custody increased for the third time
This is the third time that Imran Khan’s judicial custody has been extended. His last 14-day detention period had ended today. Special court judge Abul Hasnat Zulkarnain conducted the hearing in the district jail Attock. Imran Khan has been detained in this jail since August 5 after being convicted in the Toshakhana case. After the hearing, the court extended his judicial custody till October 10 to complete the investigation.

However, the Islamabad High Court on Monday ordered the authorities to transfer Imran to Rawalpindi’s Adiala Jail, but no action has been taken yet. Earlier, the authorities had given permission to hear the case in jail citing security reasons.
