ATC grants 2-day physical remand of PTI’s Gandapur

F.P. Report

ISLAMABAD: An anti-terrorism court in Islamabad has granted two-day physical remand of PTI leader Ali Amin Gandapur.

Judicial Magistrate Ehtisham Alam on Tuesday announced the verdict on the petition filed by police seeking the physical remand of the PTI leader.

After the court order, Gandapur was handed over to police custody.

During proceedings today, Gandapur’s lawyer Babar Awan told the court that the case against his client was registered after six months on the basis of an old audio clip run on a private TV channel.

He said that physical remand was being demanded by the police on the basis of voice matching. He suggested to the court to match his client’s voice in court and don’t remand him to police custody.

However, the prosecutor contended that they not only wanted to match his voice, rather they also wanted to recover weapons from the accused.

Earlier, police quashed the terrorism sections from the case registered against Gandapur.
