ISLAMABAD – PTI leader Shahbaz Gill has filed a petition with the Islamabad High Court to get post-arrest bail in a sedition case.

Gill, who is also chief staff officer of PTI Chairman Imran Khan, has made SHO Kohsar police station, magistrate Ghulam Murtaza and others respondents in the case.

The petition states Shahbaz Gill was arrested by Islamabad police on August 9, adding that medical boards of PIMS Hospital and Adiala Jail in their reports on August 17 confirmed torture on him.

He pleaded the court to grant him bail until the sedition case against him is concluded.

The high court is yet to fix the case for hearing.

The petition come nearly three days after a sessions court in the federal capital turned down his bail plea in the same case.

Additional sessions judge Zafar Iqbal announced the verdict reserved on Monday after hearing arguments from both sides.

The incarcerated politician had filed the petition through his legal counsel Faisal Chaudhary, arguing that the case against him is based on political enmity and ill intentions.

“I have been teaching in US and European universities,” he said, adding that his statement was twisted to make a case against him.

The PTI leader is booked in two cases related to sedition and arms recovery and is in jail after he was sent on judicial remand last week after a court rejected Islamabad police’s request for extension in his physical remand.

Gill was arrested on August 9 in Islamabad after a sedition case was filed against him for inciting mutiny within the Pakistan Army.

Last week, a case was registered against him after weapon was recovered from his residence in the Parliament Lodges during a police raid conducted as part of the investigation into the sedition case.

He has already secured bail in the arms recovery case.
