Human rights lawyer Imaan Mazari, who was arrested a day earlier in a fresh case lodged under the Anti-Terrorism Act (ATA), was handed over to the Islamabad police on a three-day physical remand.
After prosecutor Raja Naveed requested it and the additional district and sessions judge Abul Hasnat authorized it, the police picked up Mazari and departed the premises of the Judicial Complex.
The court announced the ruling after the prosecution and Mazari's lawyer concluded their arguments.
A day earlier, Imaan and former lawmaker Ali Wazir — who have both been facing cases due to a recent rally held by the Pashtun Tahaffuz Movement (PTM) in Islamabad — had been granted bail in a sedition case.
However, hours later, she was re-arrested by Islamabad police in connection with a case registered on terrorism charges at the Bhara Kahu police station on Sunday.
