Azam Swati, a member of the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI), has been held in police jail for three days.
According to information, Azam Swati was presented before the court of judicial magistrate Qamar in a matter involving contentious tweets directed against a government agency.
Zameer Khoso and Qamaruddin’s charges led to the filing of two FIRs against Azam Swati, the Qambar police informed the court at the beginning of the hearing. The police begged the court to order the PTI legislator to be held in custody physically.
The PTI leader was then given a three-day physical remand by the court and turned over to the police.
Senator Azam Swati was moved to Sindh earlier this week after the BHC decided to drop all FIRs against him for making disparaging comments against institutions.
In another development, the Sindh High Court (SHC) served notices to the provincial government, prosecutor general and the IG police over the registration of multiple cases against the PTI senator.
The notices were served on the complaint of Usman Swati, who challenged the registration of multiple cases against his father in Sindh.
