Police inform the court that a report concerning the categorizing cases as C-class cases will be presented to magistrates.
KARACHI: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) leader Shahbaz Gill got relief from the Sindh High Court (SHC) on Thursday when the court dismissed three cases filed against the leader at Karachi based on the Police.
A two-member bench, ruled by Justice Naimatullah Phulpoto, listened to the matter on Gill’s demand to dismiss three of the cases brought within Karachi against him for making negative remarks about the national institutions.
During the hearing, the police officials informed the court that their report on categorizing three cases in the C-class classification would be presented to magistrates.
In the petition application, the PTI leader took the position that cases have been filed against him at Sarjani Town, Brigade, and Rizvia police stations in the city. He claimed that a case linked to his assertion was already registered at the Manga Mandi police station of Lahore.
Thus, the cases recorded in Karachi must have been declared invalid and null.
In December 2022 in 2022, in December 2022, the Balochistan High Court (BHC) had the court order the cancellation of the initial informing report (FIR) made for Gill from the Killa Abdullah district of the province.
In granting the order, the judge knew there was no way to have multiple cases filed against an accused in a single case or allegation.
Furthermore, a bailable detention warrant was also granted for Gill last month when he was charged with inciting sedition in state institutions after the court ruled against Gill’s request for an exemption from attendance at personal events.
