Former Punjab police inspector Abid Hussain Qureshi, also known as Abid Boxer, has been granted interim bail in all cases against him till August 4.
He is wanted in multiple cases of murder and attempted murder. Abid appeared before the sessions court in Lahore on Friday. Accepting his bail plea, the court ordered him to submit surety bonds of Rs100,000 in each case.
Talking to the media outside the court, Abid said, “I have returned to Pakistan after 11 years. Just wait till the evening, I will provide evidence of everything that has been done to me.”
He rejected the notion that he had made statements against former Punjab chief minister Shehbaz Sharif at someone else's behest.
