Section 144 violation case: Court grants interim bail to six PTI leaders


ISLAMABAD: An Islamabad Additional Sessions Court has granted interim bail to six Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) leaders in the Section 144 violation case registered for holding a rally on August 20 in the federal capital.

Additional Sessions Court Judge Faizan Haider Gilani granted provisional bail for six Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) leaders – Saifullah Niazi, Ali Awan, Raja Khurram, Faisal Javed, Sadaqat Abbasi and Shahzad Waseem.

The leader was released on bail of 20,000 rupees following an application to the court earlier in the day.

The PTI members lodged bail applications after charges were filed against them at Aabpara Police Station. Party leaders took part in a rally to protest the arrest and “torture” of PTI leader Shahbaz Gill.

In the petition, party members claimed the cases against them were “baseless”, adding that the rallies were peaceful and that the cases were an attempt to suppress the leaders.

They insisted that the terms on which the leaders were charged were bailable and asked for bail to be granted.
