Tuesday, May 21, 2024

LAHORE: An anti-terrorism court on Monday dismissed the bail plea of PTI leader Chaudhry Parvaiz Elahi in the Jinnah House attack case deeming it premature.

The decision was made by ATC Judge Arshad Javed during the hearing of the case. Elahi’s counsel argued that there was a looming possibility of his client’s arrest in connection with the Jinnah House attack case. It was mentioned that the former Punjab chief minister had previously been detained on judicial remand in various cases. The petitioner pleaded before the court to grant bail to Parvaiz Elahi in the Jinnah House attack case. However, the prosecution contended that the bail petition failed to satisfy legal requirements, highlighting that Elahi had not yet been arrested in relation to the case.
