An anti-terrorism court (ATC) on Friday acquitted Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chief Imran Khan in a case pertaining to manhandling of then SSP Islamabad (Operations) Asmatullah Junejo during the 2014 sit-in in Islamabad.

Earlier today, ATC Judge Shahrukh Arjumand read out the Imran Khan acquittal verdict in the case.

Khan presented an 11-point agenda, pledging to bring about "peaceful political change" and defeat "corrupt" politicians.

Speaking to media here, Zardari alleged that former prime minister Nawaz had weakened the country and left it "hollow", Geo News reported.

On Wednesday, PML-N quaid Nawaz Sharif said that he had no competition with Imran Khan and Asif Ali Zardari.

Imran also called out Nawaz's daughter Maryam for being a false champion of women's rights.

Marseille snatch extra-time victor at Salzburg to set up Atletico final
The set-piece that led to the winning goal was contentious as Salzburg thought the ball had come off a Marseille player last. The French side went into the second leg with a 2-0 aggregate advantage, but Salzburg levelled things up in normal time.

Commenting on the recent backlash faced by the ruling party over the sexist, misogynist remarks passed by the provincial law minister, Chaudhry said, "Who says we don't respect women?"

"No angels will form the government, only the people of Pakistan will", he said.

The court had reserved its verdict on April 13 after hearing arguments from both sides and set April 25 as the date for delivering the verdict. The PTI chief and other party leaders were accused of attacking the Parliament and Pakistan Television office during the 2014 sit-in in Islamabad.

Two ATCs are hearing the total of four cases against the party leaders in Islamabad.

The PTI and Pakistan Awami Tehreek (PAT) leaders were booked after they marched towards the Parliament and PM House during the 2014 rally, in an attempt to topple the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz government. The protesters also ransacked the PTV office.
