In a case involving threats made against members of the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP), a local court in Islamabad has remanded Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Vice President Fawad Chaudhry in police detention for two days.

In an effort to secure Fawad Chaudhry’s physical remand, Islamabad police brought him before a judicial magistrate. The police asked the local court for Chaudhry’s physical remand for a period of eight days.

In any case, the judicial judge granted Chaudhry a two-day physical remand and directed the police to once again bring him on January 27.

It’s worth noting that Fawad Chaudhry, leader of the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf and a former federal minister, was detained at his home in Islamabad for allegedly “threatening” officials of the Election Commission of Pakistan.

Secretary of the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) Omer Hamid Khan filed a complaint against Chaudhary at the Kohsar police station in Islamabad last night.

After he made certain threatening comments against the ECP and its members, the first information report (FIR) was filed against him.

The PTI leader has been booked under sections 153-A (promotion of enmity between groups), 506 (criminal intimidation), 505 (statement conducing to public mischief) and 124-A (sedition) of the Pakistan Penal Code.

Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf (PTI) leader Fawad Chaudhry was brought from Lahore to Islamabad by police earlier today so that he may appear before Judicial Magistrate Waqas Raja.

Initial reports said that the capital police had asked the judge to place the PTI leader on physical remand; however, the Judicial Magistrate’s Court had already closed for the day.

Sources indicate that the former minister’s legal team also communicated with the Islamabad F-8 session court.

The PTI members are expected to hold demonstrations after the arrest of the party leader. In the meanwhile, the Lahore police compiled a list of the party’s most active employees and activists.
