Imran Khan of Pakistan is granted bail by the anti-terrorism court
An anti-terrorism court in Pakistan's capital of Islamabad has granted bail in several instances involving former prime minister Imran Khan.
In eight cases involving violence at the court complex in March of this year, the leader of the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) party, according to media reports on Tuesday, was given bail until June 8.

In a corruption case, the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) court in Islamabad on Tuesday also granted precautionary bail to Bushra Bibi until May 31.
Later on in the day, Khan will appear before another NAB court in the garrison town of Rawalpindi. He claims that since he was dismissed from office in April of last year, he has been the target of approximately 150 legal cases.
The couple is accused of taking a gift of land to establish a private university in return for helping a real estate tycoon out with benefits. Khan disputes the accusation, claiming that neither he nor his wife committed any wrongdoing.
The changes occur when the government represses the followers of Pakistan's foremost opposition figure.
Following Khan's incarceration earlier this month, a large number of people organised violent protests and destroyed government buildings and military facilities.
After Khan was released pursuant to a ruling by the nation's Supreme Court, the rioting calmed. Conflicts with the security forces resulted in the deaths of ten persons.
Khan has run a campaign against Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif's administration, alleging that Sharif's removal from office was unlawful and calling for early elections.
Khan and his wife departed for nearby Rawalpindi to appear before the NAB court after the Islamabad court on Tuesday granted him protection from arrest until June 8.
