MULTAN: A special anti-terrorism court in Multan on Saturday granted pre-arrest bail to Pakistan Muslim League – Nawaz district president Bilal Butt and 18 others who were accused of attacking Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf’s (PTI) vice president Shah Mehmood Qureshi’s residence in Multan.
Butt and 18 others appeared in the special ATC today.
On the occasion, Butt denied involvement in the attack and said that he was in fact trying to restrain the workers. He expressed hope that the court would provide him justice.
Judge Iqbal Warraich granted pre-arrest bail to Butt and 18 others until September 4.
Butt and other club-wielding PML-N workers had allegedly stormed the residence of Qureshi on Wednesday with the police registering a case against them on Thursday.
Meanwhile, the Butt community warned on Saturday that if criticism continued against the community, then it would also stage protests in Islamabad.
The Butt community said the entire community should not be subjected to criticism because of a few characters.
