PESHAWAR, November 13: The Anti-Terrorism Court in the federal capital Islamabad has issued arrest warrants for Pakistan Tehrik-e-Insaf (PTI) chief Mr Imran Khan, Pakistan Awami Tehrik chief Mr Tahirul Qadri, Chief Minister Pervez Khattak and several other PTI leaders.

The court issued the warrants for attack on the Pakistan Television offices and Parliament by the PTI workers soon after they launched their sit-in against the government on 14 August.

In September, activists of the PTI and PAT broke into the PTV headquarters, which is state-owned media enterprise.

Soon after entering the PTI headquarters, the protesters took over the offices and put transmission off air for some time. Later, the army intervened and vacated the building. The demonstrators had also damaged furniture and TV equipment during their protest.

The Islamabad Police say they have formed teams and that the accused would be arrested soon.

However, Imran Khan says that they had no role in the attacks but that the government wanted to arrest him to foil the November 30 rally of the party.
