Islamabad High Court (IHC) on Monday ordered the jail officials to place Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) President Chaudhry Parvez Ealhi under house arrest within 15 days at his residence.

According to the 24News HD TV channel, the IHC Justice Arbab Muhammad Tahir pronounced the reserved ruling in the case of Qaisara Elahi to shift his husband Chaudhary Parvez Elahi prisoned in Adiala Jail to his residence on Monday.

Accepting the plea submitted by Qaisara Elahi regarding Pervez Elahi's old age (78) and health concerns and shifting him to hospital or declaring his residence a sub-jail, the court ordered the Adiala Jail officials that he be placed under house arrest and transferred to the sub-jail within 15 days.

In addition, the court directed the jail authorities to make sure Parvez Elahi had access to adequate facilities and medical attention while under house arrest.

It is worth mentioning that Parvez Elahi got injured as he slipped in the washroom of Adiala Jail on March 19 and Adiala Jail superintendent submitted a report to the court that PTI leader Ch Pervez Ealhi’s ribs fractured after he fell in the washroom of the jail.

On March 29, Parvez Elahi shifted to PIMS hospital where he had pain in his ribs. Pervaiz Elahi has been complaining of shortness of breath, bodyache and a mark of injury above his eye. Pervaiz Elahi was also suffering from other diseases including heart disease.

On April 3, incarcerated Elahi was once again shifted to PIMS Hospital from Adiala Jail in Rawalpindi for medical examination after complaining of heart problem.
