Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) leader Ali Muhammad Khan was released from jail on Thursday. The official Twitter account of PTI tweeted, “After spending 80 days in jail, facing 8 arrest and bogus cases our Ali Muhammad Khan is finally out of jail!” The release comes on the heels of the order by Peshawar High Court (PHC) earlier today. The court granted bail to PTI leader, who had been arrested under the Maintenance of Public Order (MPO) law. A two-member bench comprising Justice Ijaz Anwar and Justice Fazal Subhan heard Ali Muhammad Khan’s plea and ordered his release. Furthermore, the court summoned the deputy commissioner of Mardan to appear at the next hearing of the case, scheduled for August 8. It’s worth noting that this was the eighth time Ali Muhammad Khan faced arrest. Ali Mohammad’s lawyer Shehryar Khattak said the PTI leader had departed for his village in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa’s Hathian. Ali Mohammad was first arrested by the Secretariat police on May 11 under Section 3 of the Maintenance of Public Order Order (MPO) in connection with the violence that took place on May 9 – the day violent protests broke across the country following PTI Chairman Imran Khan’s arrest. “But despite getting bail, he was arrested seven times by the anti-corruption establishment in Mardan in several cases,” Khattak claimed. The lawyer said that his client was granted bail in a corruption case by a Peshawar sessions court on Wednesday against surety bonds of Rs200,000. However, immediately after the court granted his release, Ali Mohammad was re-arrested under 3-MPO (Maintenance of Public Order) for one week on the orders of the Mardan deputy commissioner. “Finally, he was released on orders of the Peshawar High Court,” Khattak added.
