Islamabad: Imaan Mazari, a human rights lawyer arrested a day earlier in a new ATA case, was given a three-day physical remand by the Islamabad police.
On prosecutor Raja Naveed’s motion, Abual Hasnat, the extra district and sessions judge, granted Mazari’s physical remand, and the police took him and departed the judicial complex.
The prosecution and Mazari’s lawyers ended their arguments before the court.
After an ATC judge granted Mazari and Pashtun Tahafuz Movement (PTM) leader Ali Wazir’s bails in a sedition case related to their contentious statement against state institutions, Imaan arrested in a fresh terror case outside Adiala jail in Rawalpindi a day earlier.
The Imaan’s lawyer stated the cops didn’t tell them about her arrest.
Before remanding Imaan, the judge let her meet her mother Shireen Mazari in court.
The prosecutor argued today that the police demanded Imaan’s remand because the trial had not begun.
We must gather evidence against Imaan Mazari, the prosecutor told the court.
Zainab Janjua, the human rights lawyer’s attorney, challenged the police’s remand request.
She stated police investigations do not require suspects to be detained.
The Supreme Court said not to arrest the suspect in every case. Imaan Mazari is a lawyer, so she is not running away, she added, booking her terror client for victimisation.
