After hearing the appeal contesting Mr. Qureshi’s arrest, Justice Miangul Hassan Aurangzeb ruled that his arrest under the 3 MPO (Maintenance of Public Order) was unlawful.
The judge announced that the PTI leader would be freed following the submission of an undertaking. The PTI leader would be consulted before the undertaking was submitted, according to Mr Qureshi’s solicitors’ statement to the court.
The PTI leader was detained on May 11 in Islamabad as the government tightened its grip on the party in response to nationwide demonstrations against the detention of the former prime minister Imran Khan.
During a raid at Gilgit-Baltistan House in Islamabad, police detained Mr. Qureshi.
