The indictment of former federal minister Sheikh Rashid in a case involving his claims against Zardari for allegedly plotting a plot to assassinate Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan was set for March 2 by an Islamabad district and sessions court.
On Saturday, the leader of the Awami Muslim League (AML) and his attorney appeared before judicial magistrate Umar Shabbir. He requested the filing of a complaint against the SHO of the Abpara police station for failing to restore his stuff.
Once the AML director supported Khan’s claims that Zardari was attempting to kill PTI chair, numerous cases were brought against him. According to the police, Rashid was initially detained on February 2 in connection with accusations made against Zardari.
The Murree Police also filed a case against him a day later. In the Mochko police station in Karachi, an FIR was also filed against Rashid for using “filthy” words towards Foreign Minister Bilawal Bhutto. He was also the subject of a similar case in Lasbela.
The Islamabad police presented a challan of the case against Rashid in court during the hearings on Saturday.
Rashid will reportedly be charged in the case on March 2, according to judicial magistrate Shabbir.
The application for the registration of a case against the SHO of the Abpara police station was subsequently returned by him, along with a note stating that it should be sent to a sessions court judge as it was outside of his purview.
Rashid asked to go to a conference on March 15 during the hearing.
The court stated that it was unable to grant additional extensions due to directives from the high court and the police submitting a challan. The court said, “We shall see when the trial begins.
Rashid was then instructed by the court to assure his appearance on March 2.
Sheikh Rashid attacked the PML-N leadership after the court hearing, saying they were utilizing planes operated by robbers and mafia members.
The former interior minister stated, “I was asked to provide the passwords of my mobile phones, which I supplied to them.
After obtaining parole from the Islamabad High Court (IHC), AML chief was released from the Adiala jail on February 16 more than two weeks after being detained by the Islamabad police for allegedly levelling false accusations against Zardari.
