ACE Punjab arrests Parvez Elahi in Lahore Master Plan case

Lahore (Web Desk): Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) president and former Punjab Chief Minister Parvez Elahi was again taken into custody by Anti-Corruption Establishment (ACE)  Punjab on Saturday, just a day after an anti-terrorism court granted him bail in judicial complex attack case.

ATC Judge Abual Hasnat Zulqarnain had accepted Elahi's bail against the surety bond of Rs20,000, which Elahi's legal team failed to pay.

Due to the non-payment of the bail bond, the Anti-corruption Establishment (ACE) cell arrested Elahi from Adiala jail.

The PTI president was taken to judicial complex for his transitory remand today. The court granted one-day remand of the former Punjuab CM.

The court also ordered to conduct a medical examination of Parvez Elahi before his transfer.

The officials said that Elahi will be taken to the ACE headquarters in Lahore by evening.

It is important to mention that there are four corruption cases registered against Elahi.

On September 8, the same court sent Chaudhry Parvez Elahi on 14-day judicial remand in the Judicial Complex attack case.

The PTI president was arrested on September 1,shortly after his release from the National Accountability's (NAB) custody, despite the Lahore High Court (LHC) had explicitly restricted the authorities from arresting him.
