Lahore: Shahbaz son-in-law gets bail in Bakery torture case
LAHORE: Son–in–law of Chief Minister Punjab, Shahbaz Sharif, was granted bail after a local court on Friday accepted his bail plea in bakery torture case, SAMAA reported. Judicial magistrate in Lahore’s session court granted bail to Ali Imran against security bonds of Rs50,000. He was handed over to police on 14-day remand on Thursday. Ali Imran on Wednesday surrendered to police reportedly on the directives of Shahbaz Sharif, who is also central leader of the Pakistan Muslim League–Nawaz.
Imran’s other accomplices, six policemen and two civilians, have already been granted bail in the case. They were accused of torturing a young bakery worker for not serving Imran’s wife and Shahbaz Sharif’s daughter Rabia Imran.
The incident came to light when a CCTV video surfaced on social media websites showing the bakery employee being beaten by guards of Punjab CM’s daughter.
The CCTV footage indicates that Rabia Imran tried to enter a bakery in Lahore at around 12:00 PM but the bakery was closed. She opened the bakery by force using her guards and wanted to buy some bakery items (probably a cake).
The guard in the Bakery tried to tell her that bakery is closed right now and she can’t buy, prompting Rabia to lash out at the guard as the footage shows.
