A local court in the federal capital on Sunday remanded human rights lawyer Imaan Mazari and Pashtun Tahafuz Movement (PTM) leader Ali Wazir into police custody in a case of “interference in state affairs”.
The Islamabad police had arrested Imaan and Wazir in separate instances in the wee hours of Sunday on the charges of interference in state affairs. The two have been separately booked in a case, registered under the Anti-Terrorism Act.

At this, the court sought a report from the Tarnol Police’s Station House Officer (SHO) on the matter.
Meanwhile, the court remanded Wazir into police custody for a day in a terrorism case and ordered that Imaan will stay in women’s police station’s custody in this case.
