Sargodha: Midhyana granted bail in 3 cases
SARGODHA: Former PPP MPA Muhammad Aslam Midhyana was released from the district jail after he was granted bail in three cases by the sessions court here on Friday. Midhyana’s son MPA Awais Midhyana and son-in-law Nadeem Afzal Chan, an MPA from Mandi Bahauddin, and a large number of PPP workers accorded a warm welcome to him outside the jail. Talking to reporters, Awais Midhyana and Nadeem Chan said courts had provided them justice although the chief minister tried to pile pressure on Aslam Midhyana to change his loyalty.
Aslam Midhyana along with his accomplices had been arrested in a teacher torture case while the police added Section 7 of the Anti-Terrorism Act which was deleted on the orders of a division bench of the Lahore High Court.
His case was also shifted from the ATC to an ordinary court while the judicial magistrate had rejected his bail petition.
Meanwhile, another case of land–grabbing was got registered against the former PPP MPA by a landlord of Jala Makhdoom after a lapse of 10 years. He was also booked in yet another case for attacking Shahid Nazir Khan, the counsel for victim teacher Nafees Lodhi.
