IHC restrains police from ‘unnecessarily’ harassing PTI leaders


The Islamabad High Court on Monday issued a major order ahead of the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf long march, questioning the Islamabad police’s list of PTI leaders ordered to submit surety bonds and restrained the police from ‘unnecessarily’ harassing citizens.

Chief Justice of the IHC Athar Minallah heard former advocate general Niazullah Niazi’s petition against harassment by the police as the Islamabad police submitted their report to the court.

The chief justice questioned what kind of lists the police were making, to which the state council stated that the inspector-general had made a list of PTI leaders who were asked to give surety bonds.
