Sections 124-A and 153-A are non-bailable charges while an accused can get bail if charged under section 505 of the PPC.

Shandana Gulzar Khan is the third opposition lawmaker who has been booked for sedition after Azam Swati and Fawad Chaudhry. Both the former federal ministers are currently on bail.

In the FIR, the complainant alleged that he heard the PTI leader making serious allegations and attempted to incite violence through her comments on a TV channel.

“Peshawar is my city, I have seen it in destruction during General Musharaf’s time. This is unfortunate for Pakistan that when generals consider themselves god, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa comes under terror attacks,” the police complaint stated.

The FIR further said that the PTI leader in a way hinted that terrorism is taking place in KP in a planned way.

The PTI leader, according to the FIR, also tried to create disharmony and incite violence in the country through his comments.

Information suggests that court magistrate Malik Muhammad Imran exonerated Imran Khan, Shah Mehmood Qureshi, and Sheikh Rasheed, the chief of AML, in addition to announcing the reserved verdict.

Acquittal of Sadaqat Abbasi and Ali Nawaz Awan from the Azadi March case was also ordered by the court.

It should be mentioned that numerous prominent members of the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI), like as Shah Mahmood Qureshi, former prime minister Imran Khan, and others, were apprehended by the police in separate complaint letters pertaining to the Azadi March.

Following unrest between police and the PTI leader in the provincial capital, 42 charges were filed against PTI senior leaders and workers for agitation.

The Islamabad High Court (IHC) had previously found former prime minister Imran Khan and PTI leader Shah Mehmood Qureshi not guilty in a case involving ciphers.

Decisions on appeals from the cipher case’s conviction were announced by Chief Justice Aamir Farooq and Justice Miangul Hassan Aurangzeb of the IHC.

The party’s vice-chairman and founder, who was convicted in a similar case in January of this year, received 10-year prison sentences apiece.

On the other hand, Qureshi’s arrest in the crimes that occurred on May 9th and Imran’s sentences in the Toshakhana and Iddat cases mean that they are unlikely to be released from prison anytime soon.
