A local court on Friday (July 5) extended bail to Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) leader Mustafa Nawaz Khokhar over his involvement in a case related to attacking police officials on the occasion of former president Asif Ali Zardari and PPP Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari’s NAB appearance. Khokhar was given bail against a surety bond of Rs500,000.
The hearing was presided over by the Additional District and Session Judge, Jehangir Awan. The court while accepting Nawaz’s plea to grant him one-day exemption from court appearance, extended his bail till July 9.
A case was filed against PPP workers and Khokhar for attacking police personnel and causing a disturbance during Bilawal Bhutto Zardari and Asif Ali Zardari’s appearance before a NAB investigation team. Earlier while defending his stance he had said that a false and baseless FIR was registered at the behest of the government.
