Islamabad court rejects Shahbaz Gill’s bail petition
An Islamabad court on Tuesday rejected senior PTI leader Shahbaz Gill’s bail petition in the sedition case filed against him.
Additional Sessions Judge Zafar Iqbal while pronouncing the reserved judgment rejected Shahbaz Gill’s bail petition.
Earlier, Shahbaz Gill had filed an application for bail in the session court last week.
Former Prime Minister Imran Khan’s Chief of Staff Shahbaz Gill was detained by the Islamabad Police on August 9 on charges of sedition and inciting people against state institutions after he made a controversial statement on the private news channel.
Yesterday Additional Sessions Judge Zafar Iqbal heard Shahbaz Gill’s bail application in Islamabad District and Sessions Court.
His bail in the arms recovery case has already been approved.
Gill was booked in the case after police raided the incarcerated PTI leader’s room in Parliament Lodges late Monday, where they recovered weapons, a satellite phone, and foreign currency.
The PTI has repeatedly demanded that the party leader be released on bail, alleging that he is facing humiliation, torture and sexual abuse in police custody.
Gill, during the raid at his Parliament Lodge’s residence, also told journalists that he had been sexually assaulted.
