Police take custody of Fawad Chaudhry for two days

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.

At the Kohsar police station in Islamabad:

Authorities lodged a case against Fawad Chaudhary late Friday night.

Umar Hameed, the secretary of the Election Commission, filed a police report (FIR) against Fawad Chaudhry for threatening the ECP and its participants.

According to the FIR:

Fawad threatened the Election Commission, its members, and their families in a speech he gave outside Imran Khan’s residence in Lahore.

Several PTI workers have gathered outside Imran Khan’s Zaman Park mansion.

Because of fearing Ik’s arrest in the aftermath of Fawad Chaudhary.

Fawad Chaudhry’s incarceration for allegedly pressuring poll authorities elicited a harsh reaction from PTI leader Hammad Azhar.

In a statement, Mr. Azhar threatened the government with widespread protests if the whereabouts of the PTI stalwart were not revealed. 

He further stated He will seek the court to get Mr. Chaudhry’s detention lifted.

He stated:

“Fawad Chaudhry was detained in a way as he is a terrorist.”
