Islamabad (Web Desk): A district and sessions court in Islamabad on Thursday acquitted Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) founder and former premier Imran Khan in two more May 9 cases.

According to details, Judicial Magistrate Umar Shabbir announced the reserved verdict citing the acquittal of the PTI founder on grounds of insufficient evidence.

Two cases were lodged against Imran Khan in the Shahzad Town police station, following his arrest on May 9 from the Islamabad High Court (IHC) premises that sparked country-wide violent protests including attacks on military installations.

PTI lawyers Mirza Asim Baig and Naeem Panjotha represented the former premier in the cases.

They completed their arguments on the bail pleas highlighting that the First Information Report (FIR) was filed by an unauthorized person and that there was no evidence to prove the charges under Section 109.
