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.
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.
