BHC orders quashing of FIRs against Shahbaz Gill

36

The Balochistan High Court (BHC) has ordered the quashing of all first information reports (FIRs) registered against PTI leader Shahbaz Gill in Qila Abdullah.

A single bench of the BHC comprising Justice Abdul Hameed Baloch passed the order on a petition filed by Gill through his lawyer which sought revocation of multiple cases registered against him in the province.

During the hearing, Justice Abdul Hameed Baloch asked how multiple cases were registered against Gill in one incident. “Registration of multiple cases in one incident is against the court’s judgement,” he observed. After reviewing the petition, the court ordered authorities to quash all cases registered against the PTI leader in Balochistan.

It is pertinent to mention here that the Balochistan police had registered a case against Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) leader Shahbaz Gill in the Qila Abdullah area for using “foul language” against state institutions.
