LAHORE Anti-Terrorism Court (ATC) Lahore extended interim bail of Aleema Khanum and Uzma Khanum, sisters of Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) founder Imran Khan, in the Jinnah House attack case.

The bail pleas of Aleema and Uzma came up for hearing before ATC on Thursday and the court extended the pleas of both till March 12.

Uzama and Aleema scolded PTI leader Musarrat Jamshed Cheema during her appearance in the court. During talks with the Imran sisters, Musarrat informed them about the cases against her and the difficulties she faced during her court disappearance. While scolding Musarrat, Aleema said you people were hiding yourselves when Imran needed you. “When the party was passing through a difficult phase and the PTI founder needed you, he was left alone. Today you are telling me compulsions. Politicians are considered incomplete without jail.” However, Musarrat kept silent after hearing the arguments of Aleema Khan.
