MNAs Ali Wazir, Mohsin Dawar granted bail – Pakistan


Peshawar High Court’s Bannu bench on Wednesday accepted the bail pleas of incarcerated lawmakers Ali Wazir and Mohsin Dawar.

Justice Nasir Mehmood heard the bail application of Dawar and Wazir in Bannu.

They will be released after legal formalities are completed. The MNAs have been asked to provide surety bonds worth Rs1 million each.

The two MNAs, who are leaders of the Pashtun Tahafuz Movement (PTM), were initially charged in an FIR registered at the Counter Terro­rism Department (CTD) police station, Bannu, on May 26 after a clash between PTM members and Army personnel near the Kharqamar check post in North Waziristan, which had resulted in the deaths of 13 persons and injuries to several others.

Separately, they were charged in the instant case registered on June 7 at the CTD police station, Bannu, after an improvised explosive device exploded on a road in Doga Macha, North Waziristan, when an Army convoy was passing through the area. The blast had left four Army officials — a lieutenant colonel, a major, a captain and a lance havildar — martyred.

On June 25, an anti-terrorism court sent the two on judicial remand to the Peshawar central prison after completion of their physical cust­ody with the CTD.
