It may be recalled that on May 9 last year, Imran Khan's Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf party had vandalised several military facilities, including the Mianwali air base, the Army headquarters in Rawalpindi and the ISI building in Faisalabad. The violence came after Khan was arrested on several corruption charges.  

On Friday, the Anti-Terrorist Court confirmed the interim bail of Khan in cases of attack on police outside Zaman Park, the murder of PTI activist Zille Shah, the torching of the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) office in Model Town and a container at Kalma Chowk, subject to furnishing of surety bonds of PKR 500,000, the report said.
