The development comes on Tuesday after the district and sessions judge granted the Islamabad police a two-day remand of Jameel Farooqui.
YouTuber and anchorperson was arrested from Karachi a day earlier.
Islamabad police arrested Jameel Farooqui for levelling false allegations against the law enforcement agency (LEA) pertaining to the alleged torture of senior PTI leader Shahbaz Gill.

He claims the reason for his arrest is that he supports Imran Khan.
