A newly-elected Pakistani lawmaker from PPP fled from an anti-terrorism court in Sindh province's Khairpur district after his interim bail in a murder case was cancelled, according to media reports on Sunday.

Nawab Wassan Khan, Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) member of the National Assembly, was booked for the alleged killing of a man and injuring 16 others on May 11.

After the case was lodged against him, Khan secured an interim bail from the Sindh High Court and reached the Anti-terrorism Court (ATC) for confirmation of his bail on Saturday.

After the judgement of the ATC, Khan fled from the court room, The Nation newspaper reported.

The court later directed police to arrest him.

After Khan's escape, relatives of the victim staged a protest in front of the court.
