Sheikh Rasheed Granted Bail in the Murree Case

Sheikh Rashid was granted post-arrest release by a court in the federal capital in a case that the Murree police had filed

The former interior minister’s bail was approved by the judge in exchange for Rs. 50 000 worth of surety bonds. Imran Khan, a trusted ally of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI), is presently held at the Adiala Jail on a 14-day judicial detention in a different case.

The development comes after a judicial magistrate and the district and sessions court denied his bail requests in a case involving accusations of a murder plot against former president Asif Ali Zardari.

After filing a complaint against him at the Aabpara police station for saying the PPP co-chairman had hatched a conspiracy to kill PTI Chairman Imran Khan, the former interior minister was detained by the Islamabad police on February 2. He was first placed on a two-day physical remand after being arrested, and then he was placed on a 14-day judicial remand.

Sheikh Rashid was also turned over to the Muree police earlier this week for an investigation in the matter of interfering with state affairs while on a one-day transit remand.
