Imaan, Ali Wazir remanded in police custody in sedition case

The two produced in court in Islamabad after expiry of their one day remand.

ISLAMABAD: An anti-terrorism court (ATC) in Islamabad on Monday handed Pashtun Tahafuz Movement (PTM) leader Ali Wazir and human rights lawyer Imaan Mazari into police custody on a three-day physical remand.

The prosecution had sought a 10-day physical remand of the suspects in a case pertaining to sedition, intimidation, and inciting people.

The police produced them in the court of judge Abul Hasnat Malik today after their one-day remand expired. At the outset of the hearing, Imaan’s lawyer stated that her client was booked in two different cases of the same nature.

The police failed to recover anything in physical remand of 24 hours and now demanding a remand of 10 days of her client.

After hearing arguments, the ATC judge handed over the human rights lawyer to police on three-day physical remand.

Earlier, Imaan Mazari broke into tears while meeting her mother Shireen Mazari, former federal minister for human rights on the court premises.
