RAWALPINDI: Anti-Terrorism Court (ATC) Rawalpindi Judge Malik Ijaz Asif has accepted the bail of former prime minister Imran Khan and former foreign minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi in 12 cases linked to the May 9 attacks on military installations.

Khan and Qureshi will remain in jail as they have been convicted in other cases.

Imran Khan was also granted bail in the GHQ and Army Museum attack cases and ordered to submit a surety bond of Rs 0.1 million in all the 12 cases. The bail applications were heard by ATC Judge Malik Ejaz Asif.

The court said there was no justification to keep the PTI founder under arrest as all accused in the May 9 cases were on bail.
