Imran Khan was granted preemptive bail in a terrorism case as Pakistan’s former prime minister appeared in front of an anti-terror court judge to explain his position on the complaints he faces.

The judge has barred police from arresting Khan until Sept. 1, said Syed Ali Zafar, a member of the former premier’s legal team. The leader will file an application seeking to quash the police complaint because it has no merit, said Fawad Chaudhry, leader of Khan’s Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf told reporters in Islamabad.
