In a significant legal development, a local court in Islamabad has granted a two-day physical remand for former Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) stalwart Fawad Chaudhry.

The former Federal Minister for Information, as well as Science and Technology, was arrested the previous day and subsequently taken to an undisclosed location.

Upon his appearance in court, Fawad Chaudhry arrived in an armored vehicle with his face shrouded by a black cloth.

This particular act of covering the face during the proceedings drew a strong objection from Faisal Chaudhry, who is both the lawyer for Fawad and his brother.

The First Information Report (FIR) was read out in the courtroom, wherein the complainant, Muhammad Zaheer, alleged that Fawad Chaudhry had accepted a bribe of Rs 5 lakh in exchange for promising employment.

It was further claimed that Fawad had threatened the plaintiff with harm when he sought the return of the money.

In response to the allegations, Fawad Chaudhry expressed concerns regarding the plaintiff’s ability to attend court proceedings for the hearing.

During the court proceedings, the prosecution requested a five-day physical remand to further investigate the case.

However, the court ultimately decided to grant a two-day physical remand for Fawad Chaudhry, marking a important step in the ongoing legal proceedings.
