In the May 9 riots case, the Lahore ATC indicts PTI Punjab leaders. Yasmin Rashid, Ejaz Chaudhary, and Rubina Jameel have been indicted by a Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf anti-terrorism court (ATC) over the May 9 riots.

After Imran Khan’s arrest in a £190 million graft case, the country was thrown into one of the most violent riots in its history, which led to the arrests of the PTI Chairman. The accused, however, pleaded not guilty in the case, keeping them behind bars for several months.

At the previous hearing, copies of the challan were distributed among the accused, and the ATC has summoned the witnesses to record their statements on December 16.

Three people have been arrested at the Lahore police station Sarwar Road in connection with two separate cases.

On May 9, Dr Rashid delivered provocative speeches at Lahore’s Sherpao Bridge against state institutions, which led the ATC to extend her judicial remand, handing her over to the Punjab Police until November 27.

After the Toshkhana case was closed, Khan was released, but many of his party’s leaders, workers, and supporters were incarcerated or re-arrested over and over again.

Shah Mahmood Qureshi, the party’s Vice Chairman, and the PTI chief are currently being held in custody in the cipher case, while other leaders remain incarcerated in relation to the violence that took place on May 9. Their trials are taking place in different courts across the country at the moment.

A riot broke out on May 9

As a result of Imran Khan’s arrest in the £190 million settlement case, riots broke out almost across the country on May 9. As a result of violence and attacks on military installations, hundreds of PTI workers and senior leaders have been put behind bars.

It was reported that miscreants attacked both civil and military installations during the protests; these included Jinnah House in Rawalpindi, as well as the General Headquarters (GHQ) in Rawalpindi. Taking action under the Army Act, the military declared May 9 “Black Day.”.
