Journalist Misbehavior Case: PTI’s Faisal Javed Khan Indicted

On March 13, Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf (PTI) leader Faisal Javed Khan was indicted by the District and Sessions Court in Islamabad in a case of threatening a journalist. The indictment follows a complaint filed against Javed Khan at the Bani Gala police station on August 10, 2022. 

During a press conference on August 9, 2022, held by then-Senator of PTI Javed Khan,  three journalists—Wajid Mughal from 24 News channel, Arslan Baloch from Dunya News, and Mudassar Javed from Dawn News—were prevented from setting up their cameras and were forcibly pushed away by PTI party workers in Islamabad. This occurred because the journalists did not include the party workers in their camera frames. 

Senior Civil Judge Qudratullah presided over the proceedings on March 13, where the defense counsel, Sardar Masroof, requested time to review the documents and urged for an adjournment without a hearing. However, the court rejected the plea and proceeded to indict the former senator.The court further scheduled May 13 for the statements of witnesses and adjourned the hearing. Javed Khan’s legal team has maintained his innocence, denying the allegations brought against him.
