LAHORE    -   An anti-terrorism court (ATC) on Monday granted interim bail to Yasin Sohal till September 5 in Lahore NAB office clash case. The court directed Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leader Yasin Sohal to sub­mit surety bonds of Rs 100,000 for the purpose. A duty judge heard the bail application of the PML-N leader who appeared in the court.
