A decision on the bail of former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif’s son-in-law Captain (retd) Safdar will be announced today (Wednesday).
According to the details, the session court of Lahore will issue a decision on the request of Captain (R) Safdar on bail.
Lahore court, yesterday, reserved its verdict on two different petitions, bail plea and physical remand, of (PML-N) leader captain (retd) Muhamamd Safdar in hate speech case.
PML-N leader’s lawyer took a stand that the case has been registered against his client on political basis.
The lawyer pointed out that the statement on which Captain Safdar was arrested should also include cases against members of the ruling party.
PML-N leader’s lawyer opposed the request for physical remand instead of judicial remand and declared that the case was baseless and should be dismissed.
Public prosecutors opposed the application bail, stating the provisions of the cases were unwarranted.
The government lawyer requested for the physical remand of Captain (retd) Safdar for investigation.
Nawaz Sharif’s son-in-law Capt (retd) Muhammad Safdar was arrested in Lahore on October 21.
On Oct 22, the court rejected the police’s request for physical remand of Captain (R) Safdar, and granted judicial remand instead.
He was produced before the district court today. During the hearing, the public prosecutor argued that Captain (R) Safdar was arrested by police in connection with serious allegations of provocative speech.
