ISLAMABAD, (MANEND NEWS): The Islamabad High Court (IHC) on Thursday issued orders to relase PTI leader and former foreign minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi.
Justice Miangul Hassan Aurangzeb heard the petition challenging Mr Qureshi’s arrest and declared his arrest under the 3 MPO (Maintenance of Public Order) illegal.
The judge said the PTI leader would be released after submitting an undertaking. Mr Qureshi’s lawyers informed the court that they would submit the undertaking after consulting the PTI leader.
The PTI stalwart was among the top PTI leaders who were arrested in Islamabad on May 11 as the government tightened the noose around the party following countrywide protests against former prime minister Imran Khan’s arrest.
Police took Mr Qureshi into custody during a raid at Gilgit-Baltistan House in Islamabad.
