ISLAMABAD: A sessions court in Islamabad granted on Friday interim bail to former chairman Senate Syed Nayyer Hussain Bokhari and his son Jarrar Hussain Bokhari in a case related to assaulting an on-duty police officer.

Additional sessions Judge Raja Asif Mahmood granted bail to former chairman Senate and his son against surety bonds worth Rs20,000 each.

Arrest warrants issued for former Senate chairman after policeman assault

According to reports, the suspects have to appear before the judge again on May 16.

The decision came a day after a court in Islamabad issued arrest warrants for Nayyer and his son for assaulting and intimidating an on-duty police officer.

Judicial Magistrate Islamabad (west) Jawad Hussain Adil had issued the arrest warrants.

On Wednesday, a case against Bokhari and another person accompanying him was registered with Margalla police after he hurled verbal abuse at the police personnel.

A police officer, requesting anonymity, said the man who had slapped the policeman and was initially believed to be Bokhari’s security guard was his son, identified as Jarar Hussain Bokhari.

    Is he or his son ashamed ?…. I very much doubt it., because you can’t shame the shameless.
    That is why countries have laws……sadly our laws are only the poor and weak, the rich and powerful always walk free.Recommend

    I would have loved to see this son of an ex-senate chairman visiting the police drawing room.But looks like he also had an idea and applied for pre-arrest bail.If Pakistan has to grow this VIP culture has to go, both can not go together. Recommend

    VIP culture of Pakistan has reached to embarrassing levels. He and his son were caught on tv cameras and yet no one dares to touch them. This must be a new low even for Pakistan.Recommend
