LAHORE: A sessions court in Lahore on Wednesday approved Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz leader Captain (retd) Muhammad Safdar’s bail application in a hate speech case, following which he got released from the camp prison.

The son-in-law of former prime minister Nawaz Sharif was taken into custody by police near Ravi Toll Plaza late last week.

The court also asked Safdar to submit a surety bond of Rs200,000.

After his release, overjoyed PML-N workers chanted slogans in Safdar’s favour.

On October 12, a Lahore’s sessions court approved his interim bail till October 26 in a case regarding interference in public matters and misbehavior with the police.
