Islamabad, Mar 29 (PTI) A court in Pakistan on Wednesday issued non-bailable arrest warrants for former prime minister Imran Khan in a case related to alleged threats made to a woman judge.

Islamabad-based judicial magistrate Malik Aman presiding over the hearing rejected a plea by Khan’s counsel to grant him exemption from in-person appearance.

He also rejected a plea by Khan's lawyer to allow the former prime minister to appear on March 30 when the prosecution lawyer opposed the move by saying that he should have appeared by the deadline of the arrest warrants.
