PESHAWAR – Two Pakistani parliamentarians were released on bail in the northwestern Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province after four months in detention.
MNAs Mohsin Dawar and Ali Wazir were set free from Haripur jail after the two lawmakers were granted bail two days earlier. The bail was granted by the Peshawar High Court in the Kharqamar attack case.
Dawar and Wazir, along with several activists of the Pashtun Tahaffuz Movement (PTM), were arrested after a deadly clash between troops and activists at a security post in northern Pakistan in May.
Both the parliamentarians had later travelled to Peshawar to unite with their families, according to PTM member Abdullah Nangiyal.
