The Islamabad High Court rejected on Monday former prime minister Nawaz Sharif’s bail plea in the Al-Azizia Steel Mills case.
PML-N workers gathered outside the Islamabad High Court to protest the decision.
Amber Shamsi, the host of SAMAA TV’s programme Sawaal, went over the reasons given by the court for rejecting the plea. She also went over the circumstance of the bail plea of PPP leader Sharjeel Memon, saying that according to the Supreme Court, a person cannot be granted bail on medical grounds if complete and adequate treatment is being provided in jail.
