LAHORE: A district and sessions court in Lahore on Tuesday granted bail to Khadijah Shah, a PTI activist and designer, in a case related to provocative tweets. Additional Sessions Judge Muhammad Nawaz presided over the hearing and approved Shah’s bail, requiring surety bonds worth Rs100,000.
This case was filed against Khadijah by the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) Lahore. However, she remains incarcerated as she awaits bail in another case.
Khadijah Shah, known for her involvement with Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) and being the daughter of former finance minister Dr Salman Shah, is presently held in judicial remand due to her involvement in the Jinnah House attack case, which transpired after the arrest of former Prime Minister and Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf chief on May 9.
She has been accused of participating in the protests that broke out following the arrest of the PTI chief on May 9, and allegedly encouraging more people to join the demonstrations.
