Media reports indicate that the court acted in response to a petition challenging Imran Khan’s nomination as a respondent in the case.

A case was registered against PTI Chairman Imran Khan and others on the complaint of the victim’s son.
Subsequently, former Prime Minister Imran Khan filed a challenge to his nomination in the murder case before the Supreme Court. The petition was submitted by lawyer Latif Khosa, contesting the decision of the Balochistan High Court, with the request to cancel the FIR against Imran Khan. In his petition, Imran Khan asserted that he should not be summoned in the case without concrete evidence to support such an action.
