Imran Khan, the leader of the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI), was detained on Thursday after a three-member panel ordered the government to bring him before the court. The Supreme Court of Pakistan deemed his detention “illegal” minutes after he arrived at the court.

Imran Khan’s arrest by Rangers from inside the courtroom was deemed “illegal” and his immediate release was ordered by the three-member bench, which was made up of Justice Muhammad Ali Mazhar, Justice Athar Minallah, and the CJP. The bench was hearing the former prime minister’s appeal against his arrest in the Al-Qadir Trust case.

Imran Khan was told to remain at the Police Lines Guest House, but not as a prisoner, and the Islamabad police chief was told to take care of the former prime minister’s protection. He was told to show himself in front of the Islamabad High Court first thing on Friday.
