A magistrate in Lahore approved the two-day physical remand of former deputy speaker of the Punjab Assembly Dost Muhammad Mazari.
Mazari was presented before a judicial magistrate’s court a day after he was arrested by the Anti-Corruption Establishment Punjab.
The court, after approving the remand, directed ACE Punjab to present the Punjab Assembly lawmaker in court on Tuesday.
The physical remand of the former deputy speaker was sought by the ACE lawyer, who said the allegation of land grabbing placed on Mazari needed a thorough probe, for which a physical remand was required.
However, the defendant’s counsel gave arguments opposing the remand.
