LAHORE: An anti-terrorism court (ATC) in Lahore on Friday released Pakistan Muslim League - Nawaz (PML-N) activist Gullu Butt on bail, DawnNews reported.

The PML-N activist was released on sureties worth Rs400,000 and written orders for his release were issued after the submission of two separate personal bonds.

Butt came into the limelight after he was caught on cameras brazenly damaging several vehicles in the presence of police during a clash between PAT workers and police in Lahore's Model Town.

Gullu was arrested after the incident.

He was later taken to an anti-terrorist court (ATC) in Lahore. Police officials had told the court that Butt was involved in vandalism and looting when a clash had broken out between police and the supporters of PAT.

Through his counsel, Butt had submitted that police wrongly implicated him in the case. He had pleaded that he was just passing through the area of the occurrence and urged the court to release him on bail.
