The Sindh High Court (SHC) on Monday granted interim protective bail to Ali Musa Gilani for two weeks in the ephedrine quota case.

Ali Musa Gilani, son of former prime minister Yusuf Raza Gilani, appeared in the SHC along with his counsel for the hearing of his bail plea, in which he had maintained that he was being involved in the case on political basis and that he did not have any connection with it. He also said that he feared that he would be arrested as soon as he enters Punjab.

Justice Saeed Hassan Azhar Rizvi of the SHC admitted his protective bail in exchange of a guarantee amount of Rs100,000 and ordered him to appear in the Rawalpindi court within 15 days.

Speaking to the media after the hearing, Ali Musa said that he had faith in the courts and that he was hopeful that he will get justice.
