Awami Muslim League chief Sheikh Rasheed arrested in May 9 riots case.
Police arrested Awami Muslim League chairman and former interior minister Sheikh Rasheed after the cancellation of bail in the May 9 riots case.
Rashid was the subject of a vandalism complaint at the Metro bus stop on Rawalpindi’s Sixth Road. The New Town Police Station will be the new location for the previous interior minister.
Sheikh Rasheed showed up before the ATC to request confirmation of his bail in 14 counts related to the May 9 unrest. Thirteen of the charges saw him granted bail; the New Town police station case saw his release denied.
When the judge canceled his bail, the cops took him from there and put him in jail.
It is claimed that Rasheed plotted an attack and vandalism against a key installation following the former prime minister’s arrest on May 9.
Fearing for his life, the former minister committed to campaigning from behind bars on Monday.
It is noteworthy that the head of the Awami Muslim League (AML), Sheikh Rasheed Ahmed, called the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) leader a “stubborn” and condemned the riots on May 9 of last year.
