ISLAMABAD – Islamabad High Court on Thursday restricted authorities from arresting Suleman Shehbaz from the airport on arrival, as Prime Minister's son moved court for protective bail.
Suleman Shehbaz, the younger son of the premier, was living in the United Kingdom and now he left Britain, ending self-exile after four years.
During today’s hearing, CJ IHC Justice Aamer Farooq said protective bail cannot be granted in absence of the petitioner and barred the authorities from arresting Suleman from the airport on his arrival.
The court asked Suleman to surrender before the court by December 13.
Suleman’s counsel also informed the court that his client is living abroad since October 2018, saying the cases were registered after he left his homeland.
