SC Grants Bail To Hidayat-ur-Rehman Of Gwadar's 'Haq Do Tehreek'
The Supreme Court on Thursday granted bail to Maulana Hidayat-ur-Rehman – the chief of Gwadar's Haq Do Tehreek, after a passage of more than three months.

Rehman made headlines last year for spearheading a series of protests in the port city against the illegal trawling in the waters, as well as a significant number of security check-posts, and no trade on Pak-Iran border.

The campaign, which calls for giving due fundamental rights to the people of Gwadar, was first launched in Nov 2021, with Rehman leading it.

On Jan 13, Rehman –  also the gen­­eral secretary of Ja­­m­a­at-e-Islami's Balochistan chapter – was taken into custody on charges related to the death of a police personnel by unidentified attackers in December last year, as his party held protests in the city.

The arrest spurred protests in various parts of Gwadar, with warning from his supporters of more protest if he wasn't released.

On Dec 22, a police personnel was killed when the HDT had been protesting for the aforesaid demands for nearly two months.
