Tariq Saeed

The Pakistan Muslim League (PML) N leader and spouse of Maryam Safdar, Captain retired Safdar Thursday escaped egg attack outside the Peshawar High Court building.

According to eyewitness the incident took place at the Peshawar High Court (PHC) gate where an unidentified man tried to throw egg on Captain Safdar when he was walking outside the court premises along with journalists and party workers.

Fortunately, Captain Safdar escaped the egg attack as it hit another party worker walking close to him.

The man responsible for throwing egg on son in law of PML n Supremo Mian Nawaz Sharif, however, was quick enough to flee from the scene after Captain Safdar picked a baton to hit him.

In the video going viral the man can then be seen running away from the reporters as Captain Safdar, stick in hand, chases after him.

Though the man got onto a rickshaw and managed to flee yet was later caught by people near the Cantt Railway Station and was handed over to police.

In the meanwhile Peshawar High Court high heard the pre-arrest bail plea of Captain Safdar where the counsels of the petitioner concluded their arguments.

The lawyer representing Captain Safdar said that the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) should provide the details of inquiries being carried out in one case.

It is the violation of Article 13 for running parallel inquiries of a single case in Lahore and Peshawar, the counsel said.

The NAB’s private counsel presented the chart of properties before the court to which Justice Lal Jan Khattak remarked that the chart bore no signature that has been provided to the court.

The court ordered the NAB prosecutor to provide the chart to the counsel of the petitioner.

The court also granted the anti-graft watchdog to hire a private counsel for the case. Later, the court extended the bail of Captain Safdar and adjourned the hearing.
