Imran Khan went to the Islamabad High Court amid tight security to attend the hearing of the case on Thursday. Hundreds of security personnel were deployed to the court from noon that day, according to the country’s media The News International.

Some PTI leaders reached the court before Imran Khan left Banigala residence. But security officials barred PTI leaders Fawad Chowdhury, Shehzad Wasim and others from entering the court as their names were not on the list provided by the registrar’s office.

Later, speaking to reporters, Imran Khan expressed his displeasure with the large presence of police and other law enforcement agencies in the court. However, he did not agree to talk more with the media. He said his comments could be misinterpreted by the court.

He said, ‘Every comment has a context. The country is going backward day by day and the International Monetary Fund (IMF) report shows it. They can do whatever they want. The only solution to the ongoing instability is fresh elections.’

Talking to reporters after the court decided to file charges against him in the contempt of court case, Imran Khan said he wanted to explain his statement in court about women judges, but he was not given an opportunity.

In addition, Imran Khan denied the news of a secret meeting with an official close to Nawaz Sharif, the leader of the country’s current ruling political party Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N). The former Prime Minister of Pakistan is currently on bail in a terrorism case. His bail will expire on September 12.
