An anti-terrorism court on Wednesday remanded the suspect behind the murder of four minor boys in Chunian, Suhail Shehzad, into police custody for 15 days.
The court also ordered a medical exam of the suspect.
The hearing was presided over by Judge Abdul Qayum Khan. Deputy prosecutor general Abdul Rauf Watoo was also present.
The suspect was brought in with a black hood over his head, prompting the presiding judge to ask why this had been done so, for which security reasons were cited in response.
“What is your name?” the court asked the suspect. “Do you wish to state anything for the record?”
