1 min read

A local court in Lahore on Tuesday ordered Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) President Parvez Elahi’s release on bail in the money laundering case.

The order was passed by a special court over the bail application of the former Punjab chief minister, who had been arrested by the FIA for alleged money laundering.

The court ordered Elahi to submit a surety bond of Rs500,000 against the bail, according to Geo news.
Judge Aslam Gondal of the Banking Offenses Court issued the verdict and grilled the FIA for adopting a non-cooperative attitude.

FIA did not submit the record despite the court order, the judge stated.
The FIA had booked the former Punjab chief minister and his son on charges of money laundering and suspicious transactions on June 20. He was taken into custody the next day and was subsequently sent to jail on a 14-day judicial remand.
