The court has granted bail to PML (N) leader Atta Ullah Tarar along with his three companions on Monday, reported 24NewsHD TV channel.

The police arrested PML-N central Deputy Secretary Atta Tarar and his three companions last night from Wazirabad. Today the court granted them bail on personal surety bonds. 

The PML-N activists raised slogans against the government outside the court building. 

Reacting to Mr Tarar’s arrest and his production before the court in an armored vehicle, PML-N spokesperson Marriyum Aurangzeb condemned the administration saying that handcuffing the PML-N leader and bringing him in an armored vehicle reflected the fascist mentality of the government. She lamented that now Pakistanis would be handcuffed if they tried to lodge a protest against the government. 

She termed the handcuffing of Mr Tarar as a proof of undemocratic reign of Imran Khan. She warned PM Khan that their protest against vote-stealing won’t be stopped.

While talking to the media after coming out of the court, Mr Tarar said that he got arrested through a conspiracy. He alleged that Prime Minister Imran Khan and Punjab Chief Minister Usman Buzdar were behind his arrest. They want to win election with the help of police, he alleged.
