PML-N MPA Mian Naveed Ali arrested after LHC cancels bail
Court extends judicial remand of Javed Latif till June 2
PML-N MPA Mian Naveed Ali has been arrested from the courtroom after the Lahore High Court (LHC) cancelled his bail in a case pertaining to slapping Assistant Commissioner Pakpattan, reported 24NewsHD TV channel.
LHC’s Justice Shahram Sarwar Chaudhry on Wednesday cancelled the bail petition of the PML-N MPA and his father.
However, the court has confirmed the bail-before-arrest petition of Mian Naveed’s father Rana Ahmed Ali and Ghulam Mustafa who are co-accused in the case.
It may be mentioned that last year in November, then Assistant Commissioner (AC) Pakpattan Khawar Bashir was allegedly manhandled and slapped by MPA Mian Naveed Ali and his private security guards when he fined the MPA over violation of one-dish rule at a wedding ceremony at his own marriage hall.
Reports said that an FIR had been registered at City Police Station against the MPA and four others.
Mian Naveed Ali was re-elected from PP-192 (Pakpattan-II) in 2018.
He was born on June 14, 1987 at Rahim Yar Khan and graduated in 2007 from The Islamia University of Bahawalpur, Rahim Yar Khan.
He has served as Executive Member, Rahim Yar Khan Chamber of Commerce and Industry and served as Parliamentary Secretary for Labour and Human Resources from 2013-18.
Javed Latif’s remand extended
A court in Lahore on Wednesday extended the judicial remand of Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) MNA Mian Javed Latif till June 2.
Judicial Magistrate Sabir Hussain also ordered the investigation officer (IO) to submit challan of the case on June 2.
However, the detained PML-N leader could not be produced in the court due to fears of breach of the coronavirus-related standard operating procedures. His warrants were dispatched to the court from the jail instead.
A large number of PML-N workers gathered at the court in Model Town to express their solidarity with Mian Javed Latif.
Chanting slogans of ‘Go Imran Go’, they demanded the release of the PML-N leader.
PML-N MNA Javed Latif was arrested by the CIA personnel on April 27 in provocative speeches case.
The CIA officials arrested the Nawaz League lawmaker after a session court in Lahore disposed of Javed Latif’s interim bail.
The court earlier reserved its verdict after which the PML-N MNA left the court but later Additional Sessions Judge Wajid Minhas announced the verdict after which the CIA officials arrested him.
The judge also rejected his application for bail in the cases of making provocative speeches against the state.
