On Tuesday, a court in Islamabad on Tuesday approved the four-day physical remand of PTI leader Senator Azam Khan Swati in a case pertaining to the controversial tweets against senior military officers.
Senior Civil Judge Muhammad Shabbir Bhatti announced the verdict and handed him over to the FIA till December 3.
The FIA counsel had requested for six more days of remand.
Furthermore, the court also approved the senator’s lawyer Babar Awan’s petition to not present Swati in court citing security concerns.
“Azam Swati should not be produced before the court under further order,” Judge Bhatti remarked.
He said that Swati should be presented before the court through a video link in the next hearing.
The prosecutor asked the court to write it in the order that Swati was not produced in court at the request of his lawyer.
PTI Senator Azam Swati was taken into custody by the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) early Sunday morning from his farmhouse in Chak Shahzad, Islamabad.
