DERA GHAZI KHAN – MNA Jamshed Dasti has on Friday been granted bail by the Anti-Terrorism Court in Dera Ghazi Khan.
Dasti is expected to be released from the DG Khan central jail today, according to media reports.
Jamshed Dasti, who was sent to jail on 14-day judicial remand, was granted bail to the parliamentarian on furnishing surety bonds of Rs 1 lac.
Dasti, a lawmaker from Punjab’s Muzaffargarh area, was arrested two weeks ago over his alleged role in instigating people to open the sluice gate at Kalu headworks channel.
Officials said Dasti was produced before a magistrate in a local court where the judge handed him over to police on 14-day judicial remand.
Police said Dasti, along with a number of people, had opened the sluice gate at Kalu headworks channel to release water in Dinga minor (Muzaffargarh Canal).
