On Wednesday night, an Islamabad district court issued a two-day physical remand to the head of the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI), Fawad Chaudhry.
After apprehending Fawad Chaudhry in Lahore early Wednesday, police hauled him before Islamabad District Court’s on-duty magistrate Naveed Khan.
Fawad was allegedly detained at the Kohsar police station on Tuesday night for allegedly threatening the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) members and their families.
When Fawad was taken before the court on Wednesday, the police demanded an eight-day physical remand.
The court, which had initially reserved its decision, denied the police’s pleas and instead imposed a two-day physical remand on the PTI leader.
This meant that the court also denied Fawad’s and his attorneys’ plea to dismiss the case entirely.
As the court gave the reserved ruling, Fawad Chaudhry received a medical test at the Pakistan Institute of Medical Sciences (PIMS), where specialists certified him healthy.
According to reports:
There were clashes between PTI supporters and Islamabad Police at PIMS, during which a PTI staffer was injured.
