Court extends Safdar’s bail


A sessions court in Lahore on Saturday extended the pre-arrest bail of former premier Nawaz Sharif’s son-in-law captain (rtd) Safdar till October 26, and refrained police from arresting him in scuffling with police case. In the previous hearing on September 21, the court had extended Safdar’s bail till Oct 12. Additional Sessions Judge Tajamul Shahzad had heard an application filed by Safdar for extending his bail, fearing that he might be arrested in cases against him.
The application had indicated that the police had registered a case against the petitioner for scuffling with policemen when his wife, Maryam Nawaz, was produced before an accountability court.—INP
