Imran Khan did not get permission to talk to his sons, this demand against Attock Jail Superintendent

Jailed former Prime Minister of Pakistan and Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf Chief Imran Khan is facing a lot of problems in Attock Jail. He is not being allowed to talk to his sons, due to which he has demanded contempt of court proceedings against the Attock Jail Superintendent.

According to a media report, 70-year-old Imran Khan has been sent to judicial custody till September 13 in the case of a missing cipher copy. It is noteworthy that, he has been lodged in Attock jail since his arrest on August 5 after being convicted in a corruption case.

Last month, the special court set up to hear cases registered under the Official Secrets Act allowed the PTI chief to speak to his sons - Qasim and Suleman.

According to a Geo News report, Khan in the petition has sought contempt of court proceedings against the Attock Jail Superintendent for violating the court order. In the petition, Khan claimed that the jail authorities refused to allow him to have a telephone conversation with his sons saying that they were detained under the Privacy Act.

Justice Abual Hasnat Zulqarnain issued a notice to Attock Jail Superintendent Arif Shahzad seeking a report on the implementation of the court order on September 15.

A division bench of Islamabad High Court comprising Chief Justice Aamir Farooq and Justice Tariq Mehmood Jahangiri on Wednesday suspended Khan's three-year sentence in the Toshakhana corruption case, but Imran Khan's judicial custody in the cipher case was extended till September 13 by a special court last month. After being extended, he remains in jail.
