Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz MNA Anjum Aqeel was released from Adiala jail after obtaining bail in three cases on Saturday.
“I have been implicated in false cases. My political opponents have revived old cases just to malign me,” told reporters soon after his release.
Aqeel secured bail on Thursday in a case in which he allegedly deprived a teacher of his plot despite receiving Rs950, 000.
The MNA was granted bail on August 9 for his escape from police custody on July 15. The PML-N legislator has already obtained an interim pre-arrest bail in the case of alleged corruption of Rs5.75 billion in the provision of land to the National Police Foundation in Islamabad.

Now that Aqeel Awan is free God help Shahbahat Ali, the college teacher, who registered a case against the legislator.
Anjum Aqeel is entitled to be released on bail, he is PML ( N ) parliamentarian, is sufficient proof of his innocence. Previously his bail petition had been declined by the court, after rejection of his bail application, he was arrested by the police present in the court. His cronies, armed with deadly weapons, fired shots at the police and Anjum Aqeel ran away in a car. He remained at large and was arrested afterward. His release on bail in such circumstances is a unique precedence in the judicial history; such miracles, only a leader of PML (N ) could demonstrate.
this is dissappointing..Everyone saw on tv that he forced himself out of police custody. How can he then get a bail so quickly?
What about the case of absconding from police custody? Still he is deemed fit for bail by the honorable judges... So shameless!
The grin on the face of this criminal is a slap in the face of all Pakistanis, minus the Ali Baba and 40 decoits (Nawaz Sharif + Shahbaz Sharif + the independent judiciary)!
Bravo Courts! Another feather in judiciary's mucked cap! How can they keep an inmate from the same party they belong? Bravo politicians and judges, its not u who are at fault, its us, the people, the voters and your supporters and we deserve the most corrupt like you!
