A day after the Islamabad High Court’s (IHC) order, authorities on Tuesday shifted incarcerated Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan to Rawalpindi’s Adiala jail from Attock prison following high drama.
The PTI chief was shifted to Adiala jail amid tight security. An 18-vehicle convoy — including 15 vehicles of Islamabad police — two armored vehicles and an ambulance escorted Khan from Attock to Adiala prison via motorway.

According to jail sources, the PTI chief has been provided with a high-security B-Class barrack in Adiala jail, where former prime minister Nawaz Sharif was also kept.
Khan would be provided with the facilities as per the directions of the court, the sources said, adding that there would be an attached bathroom with his room in the prison.
