ISLAMABD: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) leader Asad Qaiser was sent on judicial remand to Adiala jail on Saturday.

The PTI leader was presented in a local court presided by Judicial Magistrate Qudratullah by the police a day after his arrest.

The court was informed that Qaiser was arrested in a corruption case in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, following a request for his apprehension by the Anti-Corruption Establishment (ACE).

Qaiser’s counsel, Shoaib Shaheen, questioned the police’s authority over his unjustified arrest. Nevertheless, the court accepted Qaiser’s judicial remand and instructed the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (K-P) police to complete the legal procedure within a week.

The PTI stalwart was arrested in a raid by Anti Corruption Establishment (ACE) K-P and Islamabad police at his residence in Banigala.

PTI, in a statement released by its Central Media Department, strongly denounced the arrest of Qaisar, describing it as a “shameful” act that coincided with the announcement of the election date.

The party argued that Qaisar’s arrest raised concerns about the transparency of the electoral process leading up to the elections.
