PTI leaders granted bail in parliament, PTV attack case

ISLAMABAD: An anti-terrorism court (ATC) on Thursday granted bail to Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf’s Aleem Khan and Shaukat Yousafzai in the parliament, PTV attack case on Thursday.

Judge Kosar Abbas Zaidi resumed hearing the case Aleem Khan and Shaukat Yousafzai appeared before the court.

On May 12, the court had granted interim bail to PTI leader Aleem Khan in the case.

The PTI leader secured the bail against a surety bond worth Rs0.1 million.

On April 9, PTI former secretary general Jahangir Khan Tareen was granted bail in the case.

The ATC is hearing four cases – attack on the state television building, parliament and SSP Junejo – against PTI and Pakistan Awami Tehreek leaders.

In August 2014, Imran Khan and Tahirul Qadri took to streets in Islamabad against alleged rigging in 2013 general elections and Model Town sit-in. The protest continued for 104 days.

A case was then filed against Khan, Qadri and others for torturing the SSP and five other police officers.

PTI leaders Shireen Mazari, Arif Alvi and Asad Umar were granted bail in the cases earlier this year. The ATC also extended the interim bail of Imran Khan in the four cases in January.
