Court rejects further physical remand of Shehbaz Gill, judicial remand given till Aug 26

ISLAMABAD: A district and sessions court in Islamabad turned down a request of the police to extend the physical remand of PTI leader Shahbaz Gill. PTI leader was presented in the court at end of his two-day remand in a sedition case.

Announcing its decision, the court only granted a judicial remand of Gill till August 26.

On August 10, the court had given a two-day physical remand of the PTI leader to the federal capital’s police to probe Gill’s involvement in the sedition case. During the hearing, the police requested for an extension in Gill’s remand, but the court rejected it.

The investigation officer told the court that the CD of the private TV channel’s programme in which Gill had made anti-army remarks has been acquired and the audio evidence was matching with Gill’s voice.

On August 9, the Islamabad police arrested Shahbaz Gill when he was on his way to Bani Gala, for inciting the public against state institutions.

A treason case was registered against the PTI leader under Sections 124-A (sedition), 505 (statements conducing to public mischief), and of the Pakistan Penal Code at the Kohsar police station with the city magistrate as the complainant.

Two PTI leaders Kanwal Shauzab and Ali Nawaz Awan turned up in court to show support to Shehbaz Gill while none of the PTI leaders tried to meet Gill in jail or supported him in this case.
