Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leader on Saturday sought bail from the Lahore High Court (LHC) amid deadly risk of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
Hamza’s lawyers submitted a petition, according to which Hamza said the coronavirus pandemic had caused an alarming situation in the country while a state of emergency had been declared in the whole world.
According to the petition, “The confined space of a prison makes it virtually impossible to implement the policy of social distancing. The prisoners are vulnerable and exposed to suffer irreparably in case of an outbreak. God forbid a prison outbreak is likely to present a potentially deadly risk to its inmates.”
