On Monday, the Sindh High Court (SHC) issued an injunction prohibiting the provincial police from detaining Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf (PTI) leader Azam Swati in any more cases, and it also ordered the consolidation of two applications submitted by his son Usman Swati, who is requesting the dismissal of all charges against his ill father.
The case was heard by a SHC bench presided over by Justice Karim Khan Agha, who ordered the Prosecutor General of Sindh (PGS) to respond to the court by December 15.
Both Ghulam Nabi Memon, the IGP, and the PGS were served with notices by the court.
The court ordered IGP to provide a comprehensive report on all instances against in the province.
During today’s hearing in the murder trial of Perween Rahman, Justice Agha issued the mandates.
The judge inquired about the several FIRs filed against the PTI senator for the same offence, and IGP Ghulam Nabi was there to answer the judge’s questions.
Swati has now been in police detention in Sindh for three days. He’s been charged twice for comments that angered high-ranking military officials.
