The Peshawar High Court has stopped the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Police from arresting Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf’s central leader Sher Afzal Khan Marwat in around 10 cases mostly registered against him after addressing his party conventions in different districts. Mr Marwat filed petitions seeking to cancel FIRs registered against him in different police stations. The court adjourned the hearing, and no adverse action can be taken against Mr Marwat till the next hearing. He argued that the FIRs were registered after workers’ conventions were held in different districts. The Additional Advocate General argued that PTI had held conventions without getting NOC and that was illegal. The court also granted bail to former provincial minister Anwer Zeb Khan who was arrested three days ago. The court directed the petitioner to submit two surety bonds and asked the AAG to submit a report within seven days regarding the arrest of the petitioner. The petitioner’s counsel stated that the government wanted to prevent the petitioner from contesting the forthcoming elections by detaining him. Later, Mr Marwat said they would approach the Supreme Court to challenge the high court’s order.
