LHC Orders PTI Leader Shireen Mazari’s Release


LAHORE MIRROR — After being arrested multiple times since the May 9 riots, Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Senior Vice-President Dr Shireen Mazari is all set to go free after the Lahore High Court’s Rawalpindi bench ordered her release on Monday.

The court has asked the PTI leader to submit an affidavit to the deputy commissioner assuring no involvement in violent activities in the future.

The bench’s orders came during the hearing of a plea filed against Mazari’s detention.

After being released from custody on Islamabad High Court’s (IHC) orders on May 17, the PTI leader was re-arrested for the third time on the same day by the Punjab Police.

Officials told Geo News that Mazari was arrested by women personnel of the Punjab Police under Section 4 of the Maintenance of Public Order.

Her daughter, Imaan Mazari, too, confirmed the arrest of her mother a third time on her Twitter handle and said: “They have taken her again”.

Last week, IHC barred authorities from arresting Mazari and her party colleague Senator Falak Naz Chitrali. The court had also stopped authorities from further investigating the two politicians when they appeared before the judge hearing a plea seeking relief from further arrest.

“No further investigation is needed from Falak Naz and Shireen Mazari,” the judge remarked.
