Pashtun Tahaffuz Movement (PTM) MNA’s were released from jail in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa’s Haripur district this Saturday, according to sources. This development comes after two days from the two lawmakers being granted bail by the Peshawar High Court in the Kharqamar attack case.
A large number of PTM workers, had been waiting outside the prison for nearly six hours in anticipation for the two leaders, and welcomed them warmly when they came out after midnight.
Abdullah Nangiyal, a PTM member, told DawnNewsTV that Haripur jail authorities had received the legal documents and release orders before 6pm on Friday but the MNAs were released at 12:30am.
“The court order was sent via courier which considerably delayed the release for almost two days,” he continued.
He also informed that both lawmakers had then travelled to Peshawar to reunite with their families.
The bail petitions had been accepted on the condition of furnishing two surety bonds of Rs1 million each on Wednesday. The court also directed the two lawmakers to appear before a relevant police officer once a month and barred them from travelling abroad.
The conditional bail has been granted only for a period of one month, and will be subject to the condition of “good behaviour” by the MNAs.
