Islamabad HC Orders House Arrest for PTI President Pervez Elahi

Key Highlights:

  1. The Islamabad High Court directs the house arrest of Pervez Elahi, former Punjab Chief Minister and PTI President, within 15 days, citing health concerns.
  2. Pervez Elahi, aged 78, suffered a bone fracture in Adiala jail and was later hospitalized at the Pakistan Institute of Medical Sciences (PIMS).
  3. Elahi faces multiple arrests, with the most recent made on September 18 by the Punjab Anti-Corruption Establishment, in connection with illegal recruitments.

The Islamabad High Court has ruled in favor of placing Pervez Elahi, former Punjab Chief Minister and President of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI), under house arrest within 15 days, as per ARY News. Justice Arbab Muhammad Tahir delivered the verdict on a petition filed by Qaisara Elahi, Pervez Elahi’s wife, directing authorities to move him to a sub-jail and ensure proper medical care due to his age (78) and health concerns.

Pervez Elahi’s health deterioration while in Adiala jail, where he suffered a bone fracture after slipping in the washroom on March 17, prompted the court’s decision. The Deputy Superintendent of Adiala jail presented Elahi’s medical report during a hearing related to illegal recruitment in the Punjab Assembly, indicating a minor fracture sustained by Elahi.

Facing multiple arrests since June 1 in various cases, the most recent arrest on September 18 by the Punjab Anti-Corruption Establishment implicated Elahi in 12 illegal recruitments for Grade 17 positions in the Punjab Assembly. These appointments allegedly involved tampering with records, as reported by ARY News.
