PPP leader Abdul Qadir Patel surrenders to police
While narrating his side of story after rumors of his fleeing from court triggered into media, he said “I left for court from home and on the way I had some personal work which got me late by 25 minutes. My lawyer was following my case on my behalf.”
He said when he reached court its door was closed and nobody was being allowed to enter the court. Then, a couple of friends came out and told him that his bail had been rejected.
“It was then that I came out slowly pondering over what legal procedure could be adopted now, I left to meet a lawyer friend of mine,” he said while talking to media outside Boat Basin police station.
He said when he reached home he got the news that he was being portrayed as absconder.
“Why will I run from court yard when I have come from London to surrender myself. Rangers had written to me for information so I had to come from London. By God’s grace, I have not committed crime. Why should I flee? My absence was registered with the court,” he said.
To a query, He said there was a difference between him and interior minister like a director and labor.
He also said his party had not contacted him so far over this issue.
