Maryam Mocks Imran for Counting Registered Cases

PML-N Senior Vice President Maryam Nawaz has mocked PTI chief Imran Khan after the latter cried foul over another case registered against him and his party workers for obstructing Islamabad police team in implementing court’s order in Toshakhana case.

Taking to Twitter, Maryam trolled the deposed premier by sharing a short video of a man trying to hide in a drum, in a veiled reference to yesterday’s drama that unfolded at Imran’s Zaman Park residence in Lahore where he successfully evaded his arrest.

Imran Khan, who was ousted from power via opposition’s no-trust motion in April last year, is facing what he described as slew of “politically motivated” cases ranging from money laundering to terrorism.

After a new case was registered against him earlier today, Imran said on his Twitter handle that he the number of FIRs lodged against him rose to 76.

He said the latest treason case against him was registered for highlighting Dirty Harry’s — a reference to a senior intelligence office — “use of torture & other human rights abuses”.

“Now on 76th case against me. Well on my way to a century of cases, with the latest case of treason filed against me for highlighting Dirty Harry’s use of torture & other human rights abuses,” he wrote in a Tweet.

Replying to his statement, Maryam tweeted a video showing a man wearing hoodie jumped in a drum, apparently to go into hiding.

A day earlier, the Pakistan Electronic Media Regulatory Authority (PEMRA) imposed a blanket ban on broadcasting live or recorded speeches of the former prime minister on all satellite TV channels.

“It has been observed that Mr Imran Khan, Chairman Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf, in his speeches/statements is continuously… levelling baseless allegations and spreading hate speech through his provocative statements against state institutions and officers which is prejudicial to the maintenance of law and order and is likely to disturb public peace and tranquillity,” read an order issued by the media regulatory authority on Sunday.
