Imran reaches court to apologise to Judge Zeba Chaudhry in person for ‘threatening’ remarks

Islamabad: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf Chairman Imran Khan on Friday reached the female judge Zeba Chaudhry’s court ahead of hearing of the contempt case in the Islamabad High Court (IHC).

Imran khan apologised to Additional District and Sessions Judge Zeba Chaudhry in person for his “threatening” remarks.

The former premier had threatened the female judge during a rally in Islamabad on August 20 for which he was facing contempt charges. In the last hearing at the IHC, Khan tendered an apology and showed a willingness to apologise to the judge.

The PTI chief reached the court along with his lawyer Babar Awan but soon left the premises due to the absence of the judge. Imran, however, asked the reader at the court to inform Justice Chaudhry that he had come to apologise to her.

“You have to tell Madam Zeba Chaudhry that Imran Khan visited and wanted to apologise if any of my words hurt her sentiments,” he told the reader.
