Shah Mehmood Qureshi Re-Arrested After Release from Adiala Jail

Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Vice Chairman Shah Mehmood Qureshi, recently granted bail in the Cipher case by the Supreme Court, was re-arrested outside Adiala jail on December 27. The footage showed Qureshi being forcibly detained by police, expressing his protest against the alleged illegality of his arrest. The Rawalpindi Deputy Commissioner’s order for Qureshi’s 15-day detention, issued on December 26, was reportedly withdrawn.

Qureshi, a former Foreign Minister, stated that he was targeted for political revenge without any valid reason. His release came after the Supreme Court granted bail in the Cipher case, instructing him to submit surety bonds of Rs 1 million each. The circumstances surrounding his re-arrest remain unclear, raising questions about the legal basis for his detention.
