Sindh police granted 3-day physical remand of Swati



The judicial magistrate in Qambar remanded PTI Senator Azam Swati in police custody for three days.

Azam Swati is facing a number of cases after he posted objectionable statements against institutions on the social media site Twitter.

Police presented Swati before the judicial magistrate and civil judge and pleaded for physical remand of the PTI leader upon which the judicial magistrate granted three-day physical remand.

During the appearance before the court, strict security measures were adopted and capturing photos or videos was prohibited.

PTI Senator Saif Ullah Abro and PTI lawyers were also present outside the court.

On December 9, the Balochistan High Court ordered the police to release PTI Senator Azam Swati and quash all the five FIRs registered against him in the province.

Soon after the BHC release order, Swati was taken into custody by the Sindh police and flew to Karachi. The senator is also facing a number of cases in Sindh.

Swati was arrested last month. It was the second time that the senator was taken into custody by the FIA in less than two months over controversial tweets about senior military leaders.
