Lahore: PML-N leader Khawaja Asif was granted bail for money laundering and excess property cases.
A day ago, the Lahore High Court announced its decision to grant bail in exchange for bail worth 10 million rupees
After the court ruled, prison officials rushed to Jinnah Hospital on Thursday. Khawaja Asif was admitted to the hospital after the operation and handed the bail order to the hospital staff.
Commenting on the move, Kot Lakhpat Prison Director Kashif Rasool said that the court’s order has been implemented and Asif is free to leave.
However, despite the bail order, Khawaja Asif’s lawyer, Najam Al Hassan, stated that the doctor advised him to stay in the hospital for another two days to fully recover.
You may remember that Khawaja Asif was arrested on December 29, 2020, and he submitted an application for bail on March 27, 2021.
