Five released on bail in May 9 riots case rearrested shortly afterwards in Pakistan

Five individuals previously detained for their involvement in vandalizing state and military properties after the arrest of former Prime Minister Imran Khan have been rearrested under the Punjab Maintenance of Public Order Ordinance, 1960. Although they were recently granted bail by the Pakistan Supreme Court, the suspects were rearrested following the issuance of the 16 MPO by the Rawalpindi deputy commissioner. They were released from Adiala Jail in Rawalpindi after submitting their surety bonds.

Bail Granted, Bail Revoked

The suspects, named Owais, Saifullah, Nasrullah, Kamran, and Waqas, were initially booked in the May 9 violence case registered at the New Town Police Station. Last week, the Supreme Court granted bail to these individuals, expressing concerns about authorities’ focus on arresting participants in political rallies rather than addressing actual security threats. However, the suspects were rearrested soon after their release, highlighting the complexities of maintaining public order amidst political tensions.

Calls for Judicial Inquiry and Political Allegations

Former Prime Minister Imran Khan has renewed his demand for a judicial inquiry into the May 9 violence and alleged electoral irregularities during the February 8 elections. He urged the Chief Justice of Pakistan to prioritize petitions filed by the Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) and establish a judicial commission to investigate these matters. Khan accused the establishment of exploiting the May 9 violence to dismantle his party in accordance with what he termed the ‘London plan.’ He also criticized the closure of cases related to the Sharif family and President Asif Ali Zardari, alleging it to be part of a broader political agenda.
