A case was lodged against PTI President Pervaiz Elahi for interfering in the state affairs at the Ghalib Market police station, additionally, he is also accused of misusing power and irregularities in the development funds.
An anti-corruption court cancelled Pervaiz Elahi’s bail today. Police closed traffic on both tracks of Zahoor Elahi Road and heavy contingents are deployed outside the PTI president’s residence.
An Anti-Corruption Court in Lahore rejected the interim bail of former Punjab chief minister Chaudhry Pervaiz Elahi in an alleged corruption case.
At the outset of the hearing, the public prosecutor argued that the medical certificate submitted by Pervaiz Elahi’s counsel in court is fake.
The court dismissed the interim bail plea on the ground of non-compliance and also rejected the PTI leaders’ request for a day attendance waiver.
It may be recalled that Mr Elahi had obtained protective bail from the Lahore High Court in two cases – one filed by the Punjab Anti-Corruption Establishment (ACE) and the other linked to terrorism.
