Bail plea of women who threatened cops rejected, sent on judicial remand
ISLAMABAD (92 News) – A Islamabad judicial magistrate on Sunday rejected the bail plea of Dr Shehla Shakeel Sethi – who threatened and misbehaved with cops – rejected and sent to jail on judicial remand.
A woman identified as Dr Shehla Sethi who threatened, abused and misbehaved with the police personnel for not allowing her into the diplomatic enclave without her car registration. Islamabad police arrested the woman from Rawalpindi DHA Phase 2, and produced her before the court today.
Dr Shehla Sethi appeared before the magistrate earlier today and the court rejected her lawyer’s plea for bail and sent her on a judicial remand. Her lawyer had argued that the clauses mentioned in the first information remand (FIR) were bailable.
“My client is a heart patient and under pressure, her mental health can be affected,” he said, adding that police officers instead of helping out, pressurised her.
Judge Adnan Rasheed however rejected the lawyer’s plea and directed the investigation officer to conduct a medical test of Dr Sethi. “If the medical test confirms your client is healthy she will be sent to jail,” the judge remarked.
Earlier on Saturday, Islamabad police had arrested Dr Sethi, a US-based doctor who had recently returned to Pakistan.
A case was registered against Dr Sethi after she threatened police personnel and hurled abuses and life threats at them when they tried to stop her from entering with a car sans a number plate.
