AC assault case; PML-N MPA remanded in police custody


A court on Thursday approved two-day physical remand of PML-N MPA Mian Naveed Ali in a case pertaining to allegedly manhandling and kidnapping an assistant commissioner in Pakpattan.

Police produced the lawmaker before the court and requested that his custody be handed over to them for investigation.

Granting their request, the court remanded him in police custody for two days and directed the police to present him on completion of his physical remand.

A large number of PML-N workers reached the court and staged a protest against his arrest. He was arrested on May 26 after the Lahore High Court (LHC) dismissed his bail petition.—INP
