Gujranwala: A Gujranwala court on Monday granted interim bail to senior PML-N leader Ata Tarar and three other party supporters.
According to Atta Tarar’s lawyer, local magistrate Asif Khan today granted bail to the PML-N leader and three other party workers.
PML-N had said that Tarar along with his supporters had been arrested by Alipur Chatha police.
PML-N Vice President Maryam Nawaz also took to Twitter to condemn the arrests.
Talking to reporters after the interim bail, Tarar alleged that he had been arrested on the instructions of Prime Minister Imran Khan and the Principal Secretary to the Punjab Chief Minister. The PML-N leader claimed that he had been asked to contact Punjab Chief Minister’s Principal Secretary Tahir Khurshid last night.
