Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) leader Shehbaz Gill has been issued a bail-able arrest warrant from Islamabad’s court in a case of inciting rebellion against institutions and their chiefs.

Additional Sessions Judge Tahir Abbas Sapra heard the case against Shahbaz Gill in the District and Sessions Court Islamabad. Special Prosecutor Raja Rizwan Abbasi said that Shahbaz Gill’s lawyers had shown a very insensitive attitude. He said that Gill’s exemption from appearance was not being requested but the court was being mocked. He asserted that arrest warrants for Shahbaz Gill should be issued for absence.

Gill’s lawyer Shehryar Tariq told the court that during the physical remand his client was medically examined. He told that Gill’s illness was diagnosed in the medical examination. According to the medical report, Shahbaz Gill was suffering from asthma and has been undergoing treatment in the hospital since December 7 according to the medical report he needed to use an oxygen mask.

He further said that Shahbaz Gill has been appearing before the court in the past as well but his health is not allowing him to appear before the court at present.
