ISLAMABAD: The Supreme Court administration on Thursday launched an investigation after an image of former prime minister Imran Khan was released by Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI), sources told Geo News.

According to details, the PTI founder today appeared before a five-member bench via video link hearing a case pertaining to amendments in the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) laws when a picture of him was taken and leaked on social media.

The bench comprises Chief Justice of Pakistan (CJP) Qazi Faez Isa, Justice Aminuddin Khan, Justice Jamal Khan Mandokhail, Justice Athar Minallah and Justice Hasan Azhar Rizvi.

Khan is serving a sentence in Adiala Jail and appeared in the case after the bench approved his plea to present arguments himself.

This is the first time that Imran Khan has appeared in the apex court for a hearing since his arrest last year from Zaman Park in Toshakhana reference.

Previously, the proceedings of the case were broadcast live by the Supreme Court but today’s hearing is not.

PTI leaders have demanded the authorities to resume the live broadcast of the case proceedings. 

The sources said that the SC authorities have started the investigations into the matter, adding that police will take action against whoever is found involved in this as this was done in violation of the courtroom rules.

“Directions have been issued to review the CCTV footage and identify the person who captured the image. After this, the frame size of the video link was minimised.”

Today, when the court resumed hearing, the former premier appeared via video link seated in a room, dressed in a light-blue shirt with sleeves folded.

The image released by the party showed the PTI leader resting his face on his hand.
