Sheikh Rasheed's Post-Arrest Bail Application Rejected
- 09, February , 2023
Newstoday: Sheikh Rashid, a former federal minister, was denied his bail request by an Islamabad district court on Thursday. The leader of the Awami Muslim League (AML), a supporter of former prime minister Imran Khan, is accused of making threats against police officers, passing "offensive" and "dirty, disgusting" remarks against Bilawal Bhutto in several cities, and accusing Asif Ali Zardari of being involved in a murder plot. Murree police are now holding Rashid on a temporary remand that ends today. Following the judicial magistrate's denial, Rashid's attorneys had submitted a second petition before sessions court asking for the former minister's release on bond. However, Tahir Mehmood, the districts court judge, sent the plea to a different sessions court.
According to the argument, Rashid was the victim of police abuse because he had been singled out for political retribution. He was detained at Adiala Jail by a court order; therefore, further inquiry was not necessary, so it continued. It should be emphasized that the guilty was entered prior to the trial court transferring Rashid to the police on temporary custody so that he may be brought before a court in Murree.
