LAHORE: The Lahore High Court (LHC) has granted protective bail to former Punjab Chief Minister Chaudhry Pervaiz Elahi in a terrorism case.
Former Punjab Chief Minister Pervaiz Elahi appeared in front of LHC Justice Ali Baqar Najafi for protective bail.
The counsel for PTI president Pervaiz Elahi asked with the court for seven days of protective protection, but the LHC dismissed the request and granted bail for only two days.
He was ordered to appear in the terrorism case before the appropriate court within two days.
Pervaiz Elahi was arrested at the Ghalib Market police station in Lahore on terrorism accusations.
Elahi blames the Punjab Chief Minister for the raids
Pervaiz Elahi, head of the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf, blamed Punjab’s interim CM Mohsin Naqvi for the searches on his homes in Lahore and Gujrat.
In an informal conversation with journalists upon his arrival at the LHC, Elahi stated, “All of this is because of Mohsin Naqvi.”
Earlier, police raided the home of former Punjab chief minister and Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) president Chaudhry Pervaiz Elahi in Gujrat late Monday night, nearly two days after they raided his home in Lahore.
According to reports, police stormed four locations, including Kunjah House, the former CM’s mansion in Gujarat, to arrest him.
During the operation, cops entered Elahi’s home by scaling walls and questioning his employees. Moonis Elahi, the former CM’s son, claimed that despite the fact that the police did not have a search order, he allowed them entrance to the property.
ACE, Police raid
On April 28, an anti-corruption squad and police contingents searched the home of former Punjab Chief Minister and Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) President Pervaiz Elahi in Lahore.
ACE was said to have arrested 25 people, including a woman, during the raid. Pervaiz Elahi, on the other hand, was not apprehended during the operation.
The eight-hour-long police operation came to an end when the Director General of Punjab’s Anti-Corruption Establishment (ACE), Sohail Zafar Chattha, and the police contingent left the area.
The cops entered the property by hopping over the wall, and a police armored personnel carrier (APC) broke down the main gate.
