Court rejects Nazir Chohan’s bail plea
However, the court has reserved its judgment on the case. The prosecutor prayed for the dismissal of Mr Chohan’s bail application.
The additional sessions judge after hearing the arguments of all parties rejected Mr Chohan’s bail plea and reserved its judgment.
The Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) has filed a case against MPA Nazir Chohan on the complaint of Special Assistant to PM on Accountability and Interior Shahzad Akbar.
The trials of Mr Chohan could not be diminished, though the arrested MPA extended his apology to SAPM Akbar yesterday by recording a video message of apology. He also made direct contact with Mr Akbar on the telephone and apologized for his statement.
Mr Chohan told Mr Akbar that he sought his forgiveness for his statement in which he called him Qadiyani. He only not apologized to the SAPM but also to his family.
But it was not clear whether Mr Akbar has accepted his apology or not.
On July 28, Punjab Assembly Speaker Pervaiz Elahi also issued production orders of Mr Chohan. No decision has been taken so far whether he would be allowed to attend the Punjab Assembly session or not.
Chohan was jailed on a 14-day judicial remand and shifted to Punjab Institute of Cardiology (PIC) on last Saturday, July 31, 2021, after receiving heart pain.
