The bail has been granted over Rs. 100,000 surety bonds. Maryam Safdar had made a bail plea in the court. During the hearing, the plaintiffs’ counsel said that Safdar’s bail plea should be rejected as she killed three people and the police are trying to save her in the matter.
The court however reserved its verdict on the case granting an interim bail to her. The FIR of the incident had been lodged in the Nishtar Colony Police Station by Hamid Masih when Safdar had rammed her car into a mob of protesters. Approximately 6 had suffered injuries out of which 3 lost their lives.
