ATC rejects Pervez Elahi’s bail petition in 9th May riots.

LAHORE: An Anti-Terrorism Court (ATC) has rejected the bail plea of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf (PTI) leader Chaudhry Parvez Elahi in May 9 riots.

Pervez Elahi’s counsel has argued that there was a looming possibility of his client’s arrest in connection with the Jinnah House attack case. It was mentioned that the former Chief Minister had previously been detained on judicial remand in various cases.

The petitioner pleaded the court to grant the bail in the Jinnah House attack case.

However , the prosecution contended that the bail petition failed to satisfy legal requirements, highlighting that Parvez Elahi had not yet been arrested in relation to the case.

Under these arguments, the court dismissed Pervez elahi’s bail petition, asserting that it was premature given the absence of his arrest in the jinnah house attacks case.
