The federal government on Wednesday withdrew a plea seeking the cancellation of bail for Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) leader Shahbaz Gill, Express News reported.
Chief Justice of Pakistan Justice Umar Atta Bandial held an in-chamber hearing on Gill’s bail plea. Advocate Rizwan Abbasi represented the federal government and filed a petition for the withdrawal on the Centre’s behalf.
Advocate Abbassi said that Gill had repeated his crime again, for which a new case has been registered against him, and that an application for the cancellation of his bail would be made on the relevant forum.
The apex court approved the federal government’s request.
Chief Justice Umar Ata Bandial had fixed Jan 18 (today) as the date for hearing the government’s application, filed by the Islamabad City magistrate a day earlier.
In the petition, it was stated that the Islamabad High Court did not properly assess the facts that Gill was accused of treason against the state as he tried to incite rebellion in the military through his statements.
In the petition, the court was requested to annul the decision of the IHC regarding the bail granted of Gill.
