Islamabad (Staff Report): An anti-terrorism court (ATC) on Wednesday granted the bail of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) leaders Shireen Mazari , Arif Alvi and Asad Umar in four cases of terrorism.

Mazari , Umar and Alvi appeared before the court for the first time in the case for their pre-arrest bail. The PTI leaders submitted surety bonds of Rs 100,000 each after which ATC Judge Shahrukh Arjumand restrained the police from arresting the suspects.

The ATC directed Mazari , Umar and Alvi to appear before it on January 23.

The ATC was hearing four cases — including for the attack on the state television building, Parliament and the-then Islamabad SSP Operations Asmatullah Junejo — against the three leaders as well as PTI chief Imran Khan and Pakistan Awami Tehreek chief Tahirul Qadri.
