ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) leaders Maleeka Bokhari and Ali Muhammad Khan have been ordered released by the Islamabad High Court.
The IHC court ruled that their arrest was “unlawful” under the Maintenance of Public Order Ordinance (MPO).
Following the arrest of former Prime Minister Imran Khan on May 9, the PTI leaders were arrested under the Maintenance of Public Order Ordinance, 1960.
It is worth noting that the police initiated a crackdown on Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) officials and workers in the aftermath of the ‘violent rallies’ staged following the arrest of party chairman Imran Khan in the Al-Qadir Trust Case.
The Islamabad High Court (IHC) yesterday ordered police not to arrest PTI senior vice president Fawad Chaudhry in an “undisclosed” case for two days.
Following his release, PTI leader Fawad Chaudhry was granted relief when a single-member IHC panel led by Justice Miangul Hassan Aurangzeb prevented the police from arresting him in an “undisclosed” case.
Outside the Islamabad High Court, Punjab Police attempted to arrest PTI senior leader Fawad Chaudhry.
Meanwhile, Islamabad police detained Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) leader Shireen Mazari shortly after her release from Adiala jail.
