ATC approves bail plea of PPP’s Abdul Qadir Patel in Dr Asim case

KARACHI: Anti-Terrorism Court (ATC) on Wednesday has approved bail plea of Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) leader Abdul Qadir Patel in Dr Asim case till April 17.


According to details, the leader arrived at ATC and filed a plea, seeking bail in Dr Asim case. The court accepted the petition over surety bond of Rs 2 lac till April 17.

Abdul Qadir Patel said that he had never contacted Dr Asim for the medical assistance of any terrorist. He said that two fake cases were lodged against him with different allegations.

“PPP has no link with Uzair Baloch, I am not the only one who is saying this”, clarified PPP leader.

Earlier, Sindh High Court (SHC) had also approved protective bail of Pak Sar Zameen party leader Anees Qaimkhani for a week over surety bond of Rs 1 lac in the same case.

The lawyer M. Ilyas Khan insisted to extend the bail for 15 days as his client’s life is in danger. The court directed Anees Qaimkhani to contact local court for further proceeding.

PPP suspended the president of its Karachi chapter Abdul Qadir Patel for not following party discipline. Patel had made some statements in media against party leadership and former Interior Minister Rehman Malik a few days back in view of the awarding of Senate tickets.
