Khadija Shah, a Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) activist and fashion designer, has approached the Lahore High Court seeking post-arrest bail.
She submitted her bail application through her lawyer, Sumaira Khosa, requesting post-arrest bail in the Jinnah House attack case and the Askari Tower case.
According to the petition, the anti-terrorism court in Lahore rejected her bail despite the evidence. Therefore, Shah urged the court to grant her post-arrest bail.
Shah, a prominent fashion designer, and a US citizen, was arrested for her alleged involvement in the arson of the Lahore Corp Commander House (Jinnah House) during the violent protests on May 9.
Following a request from US officials, the Pakistani-origin American was granted consular access and subsequently sent to jail on a 14-day judicial remand along with other incarcerated female activists and leaders.
