Shahbaz Gill's bail request in the sedition case is being argued in court in Islamabad

In a sedition case brought against senior PTI politician Shahbaz Gill, an Islamabad court on Monday requested arguments about his bail request.Last Tuesday in the capital’s Banigala Chowk, Gill was detained after making contentious comments on a private TV channel the day before.

Charges of sedition and instigating members of state institutions against the Pakistan Army led to his arrest.At the Kohsar Police Station, he was charged with treason under articles 124-A (sedition), 131, and 132 of the Pakistan Penal Code (abetting mutiny, or attempting to seduce a soldier, sailor or airman from his duty).

Gill’s attorney, Faisal Chaudhry, arrived in court on Monday to present the accused leader’s bail request before a second district and sessions judge. Chaudhry argued that his arguments were prepared and asked the court to rule on the plea today (Monday).
