PESHAWAR: A local court has granted bail to Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Health Minister Timur Saleem Jhagra before his arrest for violating Code 19 SOPs case.
The Sarband police station had registered a case against Assistant Health Minister Matni for violating Corona SOPs while attending an Iftar dinner at a local restaurant.
The lawsuit was filed after photos of the incident went viral on social media. Many criticized the minister for not following the SOPs. The minister was granted bail before the arrest was confirmed by a local court.
Earlier, a police official said he had been released on bail after submitting a personal bail bond to the local SHO. Jhagra said he would not back down from legal action after a case was registered against him for violating SOPs.
