Lahore- Gullu Butt, the notorious character of Model Town incident, appeared in a local anti-terrorism court (ATC) today.

Clad in white shalwar kameez having a national flag badge on it, and carrying a tasbeeh in his hand, Gullu Butt gave a completely opposite look when he came out of the court and left the court in a white dazzling car.

On Friday, the Lahore High Court (LHC) ordered his immediate release and declared illegal all orders of his detention. However, police has still kept him under detention.

On September 19, Butt pleaded not guilty to charges of vandalizing cars during June violence in Lahore.

He was granted bail last month for security bonds of Rs 2 lacs, but was rearrested by police. Butt is being tried under the charges of terrorism in a local anti-terrorism court (ATC). He was caught on TV cameras when smashing window panes of cars on the day when Model Town incident occurred.

The violence in Lahore claimed over a dozen lives in June. A judicial panel has concluded its investigation into the incident.
