The suspects who have been granted bail say they are arms dealers and they have nothing to do with the attack on PML-N lawmaker Bilal Yasin.
Judicial Magistrate Ijaz Sanaullah Khan passed the order on bail application moved by Sajid Mahmood, Fakhar Alam and Muhammad Umar.
During the proceedings, the counsel for the petitioner argued that his clients were arms dealers and they had nothing to do with the case. He asked the court to grant them bail.
After hearing initial arguments, the judicial magistrate granted bail to the suspects.
Bilal Yasin got injured in the attack in Lahore’s Salamat Mohalla on Mohni Road on Dec 31. Two unidentified men on a motorcycle opened fire at him, as a result of which he sustained bullet wounds and was subsequently taken to Mayo Hospital.
The two prime suspects who fired at the MPA have been arrested. The “shooters” were arrested during an intelligence-based operation in Shahdara area of Lahore, the police said. They were identified as Majid and Kashif and have been residing in Lahore’s Bilal Ganj area for a long time.
