ISLAMABAD:

The Islamabad High Court (IHC) has directed the office of the capital’s advocate general (AG) to ensure implementation of the court’s order regarding arranging meetings between former Prime Minister Imran Khan and his wife Bushra Bibi on Eid days as well as on a weekly basis.

A single-member bench comprising Justice Miangul Hassan Aurangzeb on Monday noted that the AG must coordinate with the relevant departments to ensure that the incarcerated couple meets.

The bench issued these instructions while hearing an application filed on behalf of Bushra Bibi seeking implementation of the court’s April 1 order.

Imran is currently detained at Rawalpindi’s Adiala Jail while his wife is confined to Imran’s personal residence at Bani Gala, which was declared a sub-jail after Bushra’s conviction.

During the proceedings on Monday, the judge asked the AG’s office to contact the Islamabad Chief Commissioner’s Office, prison authorities, and other relevant parties and also report why the court decisions have not been implemented yet.

The judge noted that he would issue an order in the case after Eid-ul-Fitr.
