LAHORE   -  An anti-terrorism court (ATC) on Tuesday granted interim bail to Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) leader Jawad Khalid Gujjar until April 20 in the Jinnah House attack case related to the May 9 riots. The court ordered the PTI leader to furnish surety bonds of Rs 200,000 for the bail. ATC Judge Arshad Javed presided over the proceedings regarding the bail petition of the PTI leader, who appeared with his counsel.
