rasheedNANKANA SAHIB: District and Sessions Judge Rana Nisar Nankana Sahib on Monday ordered to register case against Awami Muslim League (AML) chief Sheikh Rasheed Ahmad for the provocative speech he delivered at Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) rally held in Nankana Sahib on November 12.
Petition was filed by Pakistan Muslim league – Nawaz (PML-N) youth wing’s district president. It was maintained in the petition that Sheikh Rasheed’s speech falls in the premises of a rebellion against the state thereby enticing an open confrontation with state institutions. Court ordered to file case against AML chief under Anti-Terrorist Act.  During the speech, Rasheed had warned the government of ‘judo karate’ in case an attempt was made to restrict PTI’s November 30 rally in Islamabad.
Police sources said the case would be registered at Nankana Sahib’s City Police Station after consultations between the Station House Officer and District Police Officer (DPO) Nankana over a petition which was filed by a local officer-bearer of the PML-N. DNA
