An Islamabad court has rejected the bail petitions of three PTI leaders, Shah Mahmood Qureshi, Asad Umar, and Asad Qaiser, in relation to the May 9 vandalism. The leaders were seen leaving the court quickly after the judgement was announced. They have not been arrested yet. The bail pleas of Umar and Qureshi were heard by Judge Tahir Abbasi Supra, along with another suspect named Khan Bahadur, who were all accused in a case registered at Islamabad’s Tarnol police station. The case includes charges such as assault, theft, criminal intimidation, and rioting. During the hearing, the counsel for the petitioners argued that his clients were innocent and falsely accused. He claimed that the case against them was malicious and politically motivated. The public prosecutor, however, contested these arguments and requested the dismissal of the bail pleas. The protests on May 9 occurred after the arrest of PTI chief Imran Khan and resulted in widespread vandalization of public and private properties. The government holds the PTI responsible for the unrest, leading to the arrests of several PTI leaders and workers. Umar and Qureshi were previously arrested but released, while Qaiser was never taken into custody.
