ISLAMABAD: The Islamabad police have registered a case against Shayan Ali — a UK-based social media activist of the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) — at Ramna Police Station under anti-terror law.The first information report (FIR) states that Shayan Ali, the suspect, harrassed a judicial officer in London and made videos of him.”An attempt was made to attack a judicial officer, he was saved by a security official,” the FIR adds.In the FIR available with Geo.tv, the SHO of the Ramna Police Station Nasir Iqbal filed the FIR on grounds of various video clips shared on social media.”In one video which went viral on social media, Shayan said that he would make the life of the judicial officer hell who was come to a training at an educational institution in the United Kingdom,” the FIR stated.Earlier this month, a clip of Shayan chasing around Islamabad Additional District and Sessions Judge Humayun Dilawar — who sentenced former prime minister Imran Khan for concealment of assets and corrupt practices — at the Hull University where the judge was attending human rights and the rule of law programme.PTI activists, including Shayan, descended on the university campus to protest against the jurist seeking his expulsion.

The university, however, said: “The current cohort has been selected by the Islamabad High Court, the Peshawar High Court and the Supreme Court of Pakistan. The University has no role in the selection of judges.”

The FIR further contended: “I saw a second clip, recorded at the airport terminal in which Shayan and his team were holding a placard with the name of Judicial officer and said that they would hold the traitor Judicial officer to account.

“They also vowed to chase the Judicial officer to the educational institution where he was attending official training.”

The report asserted that Shayan had also called on other Pakistanis to join him in “making the official’s life hell”.

“They also vowed to chase the Judicial officer to the educational institution where he was attending official training.”

The report asserted that Shayan had also called on other Pakistanis to join him in “making the official’s life hell”.

The complainant added that he had seen videos of Shayan chasing the judicial officer and making recordings of all judicial officers inside the building through a mirror wall, including female officers for “nefarious designs”.

Another point of concern raised by SHO Nasir was that Shayan had said “chor [thief], hunter is coming for you” along with shouting at the judicial officer, calling him “shameless and corrupt” and alleging that he was “selling the country and being stooges”.

“The security officials prevented a physical attack on the Judicial officer,” the FIR stated, adding that a very dangerous situation was created by Shayan, his team, and other protesters, especially [PTI activist] Sara Mir Gilgati and [PTI UK President] Imran Khalil, who was “claiming leader of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf UK by not confusing themselves to the designated areas for a peaceful protest”.

The report also accused Khalil of claiming to have made a reservation in Holiday Inn Marina Hall to terrorise the judicial officer.

Moreover, Adil Farooq Raja, another prominent PTI social media activist, joined the activities online by making these videos aiding and abetting the “terrorist activators”, the FIR claimed.

These actions by Shayan, his team Mir, Farooq Raja, and others, the FIR stated, were designed to “coerce and intimidate” the Pakistani authorities especially the judicial officers to force them to discharge their lawful duties in a certain way i.e. to benefit a political party through their decisions and to refrain them from discharging their lawful duties.

It added that these individuals also intended to create a sense of fear and insecurity in society.

The FIR stated: “Shayan committed acts of terrorism and glorified terrorist activities to attain political objectives, and they obstructed the learned judge in the discharge of his duties and assaulted him for restraining from his duties.”

A bail application filed by Chaudhry Parvez Elahi, a leader of the Pakistan Tehreek e Insaf (PTI) party, in the Jinnah House attack case has been rejected by an Anti-Terrorism Court (ATC) on the grounds of prematurity.

ATC Judge Arshad Javed announced the decision during today’s hearing.

The counsel representing Parvez Elahi contended that there was a significant likelihood of his client being arrested in relation to the Jinnah House attack case. It was stated that the ex-Chief Minister had previously been held in custody on judicial remand in other cases.

The petitioner requested the court to authorise the release of Parvez Elahi on bail in the Jinnah House attack case.

Nevertheless, the prosecution argued that the bail petition did not meet the necessary legal criteria, emphasising that Parvez Elahi had not been apprehended in connection with the case.

Considering these considerations, the court rejected Parvez Elahi’s request for release, stating that it was premature since he had not been arrested in the Jinnah House attack case.
