ATC sends MQM leader Babar Ghauri on 7-day physical remand


An anti-terrorism court (ATC) in Karachi on Tuesday handed over Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) leader Babar Khan Ghauri to police on 7-day physical remand.

Babar Khan Ghauri was arrested by police on Monday night minutes after he landed at Karachi airport while returning from the United States ending his seven-year self-exile.

Amid strict security arrangements, the police on Tuesday produced former federal minister and leader of the Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) Babar Khan Ghauri before an anti-terrorism court (ATC).

During the court hearing today, the police informed the court that the former federal minister was arrested in a terrorism case registered in 2015.

Ghauri rejected the allegations levelled against him by Saulat Mirza. He also pleaded with the court to order the police to provide him with medicines.

To this, the ATC ordered police to provide medical facilities to MQM leader.
