Shahbaz Gill brought to court in ambulance Indictment postponed till Jan 20

30

A district and sessions court in the federal capital on Friday adjourned the indictment of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) leader Shahbaz Gill in a sedition case of inciting rebellion in state institutions after he was brought to court in an ambulance.

The court postponed the process of indicting Gill till January 20 and issued a bailable arrest warrant for Ammad Yousaf — a private channel news director who was also booked in the case.

During the hearing on Friday, Prosecutor Rizwan Abbasi and Gill’s lawyer Burhan Muazzam as well as Yousaf’s counsel appeared before the court of Additional District and Sessions Judge Tahir Abbas Supra.

Yousaf’s counsel said that he has contracted malaria and thus could not appear in court. His lawyer submitted a request seeking an exemption from appearing in court in person along with his medical report.
