An anti-terrorism court (ATC) in Lahore on Tuesday extended the interim bails granted to 14 PTI leaders in four cases of vandalism and torture on policemen, registered at different police stations of the city, during the party’s long march towards Islamabad on May 25, 2022 until July 19, 2022, reported 24NewsHD TV channel.  

PTI leaders whose bails were extended included Jamshed Iqbal Cheema, Hammad Azhar, Dr Yasmeen Rashid, Shafqat Mehmood, Ijaz Chaudhry, Mian Mehmoodur Rasheed, Mian Aslam Iqbal, Zubair Niazi, Nadeem Abbas Barra, Tariq Iqbal, Adeel, Zaman Khan, Afzal Azeem, Hassan Niazi, Murad Raas and Yasir Geelani. 

Burhan Moazzam Malik Advocate, who represented the suspects in the case, told the court that the police was not deliberately interrogating his clients. “And whenever they go to the police stations, the investigation officer (IO) is not there,” he added.

The court directed the PTI leaders to go to their concerned police stations and record their statements.
