The PTI president was arrested hours after his release from NAB's custody on Sept 1

Parvez Elahi was granted bail in the judicial complex vandalism case on Friday.

As reported, an anti-terrorism court (ATC) on Friday approved Punjab former chief minister and Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) President Parvez Elahi’s petition seeking bail in a case pertaining to an attack on the judicial complex in Islamabad.

ATC Judge Abual Hasnat Zulqarnain accepted Elahi’s bail against the surety bond of Rs20,000.

Elahi’s lawyer Sardar Abdul Razzaq told the court that his client’s name was added to the first information report (FIR) six months after it was filed.

The Elahi counsel at today’s hearing said that others including PTI Chairman Imran Khan and party leader Asad Umar were granted bail in the same case, pleading that his client should also be granted bail.

While the prosecution opposed the bail plea.

Lawyer Babar Awan told the court that Pervez Elahi was not named in the FIR, adding that the police could not recover anything during the three-day physical remand.

“Parvez Elahi was arrested on the basis of suspicion,” he added.

At this, Prosecutor Raja Naveed said that the provisions under which the FIR was registered are non-bailable.

The ATC judge observed that Elahi was not nominated in the Federal Judicial Complex (FJC) attack case.

He added that nothing was recovered during his physical remand.

After hearing the arguments, the ATC judge accepted Pervez Elahi’s bail application.
