ISLAMABAD: The Supreme Court of Pakistan Thursday declared Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan’s arrest “illegal” and ordered his release — a major relief for the deposed prime minister who was arrested two days back in a corruption case from the premises of the Islamabad High Court (IHC).

The apex court has sent the PTI chief to the Police Lines Guest House and ordered him to present himself before the Islamabad High Court (IHC) by tomorrow, the same court which declared his arrest legal, while also setting the precedence that no person will be arrested within the premises of a court.
