A court on Monday declared Ali Zaidi a proclaimed offender in a case pertaining to hooliganism on the premises of the City Courts.

Zaidi, along with Sindh PTI President Haleem Adil Sheikh, other office-bearers and 90-100 unknown activists, had been booked by the City Court police for their alleged involvement in hooliganism and criminal intimidation when party chairman Imran Khan’s nephew Hassan Niazi was produced before a court on March 29.

A judicial magistrate (South) declared Zaidi proclaimed offender over his failure to appear before him and set December 9 for indictment of Haleem Adil Sheikh. An FIR was lodged under sections 186 (obstructing public servant in discharge of public functions), 147 (punishment for rioting), 148 (rioting armed with deadly weapon), 225 (resistance or obstruction to lawful apprehension of another person), and 506 (punishment for criminal intimidation) of the Pakistan Penal Code at the Malir City police station.
