Anti Terrorism Court (ATC) accepted the bail request of former senator Faisal Raza Abidi.
ATC granted the interim bail to Faisal Raza Abidi in the defamation case. However, last month, he was booked by the capital police and the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) for using abusive language.
The case was filed under the PPC sections 228, 500, 505(ii) and 34 and also the Anti Terrorism Act (ATA). However, it is in response to the complaint filed by Supreme Court Public Relations Officer Shahid Hussain Kamboyo.
The FIR revealed that the video went viral on the social media in which Faisal Raza was abusive and contemptuous. He used foul language and made serious allegations on the government institutions.
According to FIR, Faisal Raza Abidi scared the public, cause panic, and also intimidated constitutional functionaries. It added that the used language was punishable under the ATA and provisions of the PPC.
