LAHORE, Pakistan — On Saturday, an anti-terrorism court (ATC) released PTI Central Punjab president Dr Yasmin Rashid from the Jinnah House, also known as Corps Commander House, assault case in Lahore.
In its lengthy ruling, the court denied Ms Rashid’s request for physical remand in the case filed against her at the Sarwar Road police station. In addition, the judge ordered her freedom if she had not been arrested in any other instance.
According to the ruling, no evidence was discovered against Ms Rashid.
Previously, the ATC had prolonged Dr Yasmin Rashid’s physical remand to prison by two days in the May 9 mischief case. The court denied the police’s plea for physical detention of Ms Rashid and instead remanded her to prison on judicial remand.
