ISLAMABAD – The Islamabad High Court (IHC) on Monday reserved a verdict on a petition filed by Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan against his conviction and sentence handed down by Additional District and Sessions Judge (ADSJ) Humayun Dilawar in the Toshakhana case.

A two-member bench, comprising Chief Justice Aamer Farooq and Justice Tariq Mehmood Jahangiri, heard the petition. The PTI chief was represented by senior lawyer Latif Khosa while Election Commission of Pakistan's lawyer, Amjad Parvez, presented his arguments in the case.

After hearing arguments, the court reserved the verdict, which will be announced at 11am tomorrow.

Earlier, the court adjourned the hearing till today and ordered the ECP counsel to present arguments. PTI lawyer, Latif Khosa, finished his arguments in the last hearing.

Earlier this month, a trial court convicted the former cricket star in the case filed by the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) that involved hiding details of state gifts and sentenced him to three years in jail.

Imran subsequently filed an appeal in the high court against his conviction and also approached the Supreme Court against the IHC’s decision to send the case back to the trial court judge who had convicted him.
