Shahbaz Gill Is Given Two-Day Physical Remand By The Magistrate
August 10, 2022 / By Zunair Tahir / Pakistan News
Shahbaz Gill, the head of the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI), was brought before an Islamabad district and sessions court on Wednesday, where a judicial magistrate granted police two days of physical detention.
The PTI asserts that Gill was abducted rather than arrested, notwithstanding the government’s confirmation of his detention yesterday on charges of sedition and inciting the people against state institutions.
The police barred media from the courthouse earlier today, stating that the magistrate had ordered their exclusion.

The accused’s attorney, Faisal Chaudhry, was present as Gill was placed before Judicial Magistrate Umar Shabbir. While Gill’s attorney objected, the police asked for his physical detention for a 14-day period.
Advocate Faisal Chaudhry stated, “If we move to the high court, we would ask for a dismissal of the case.” He also raised worry over “blood stains on Shahbaz Gill’s clothes.”
Gill “has warned the court that there is a threat to his life if he is placed on physical remand,” the attorneys added in a statement to the media.
The Pakistan Army Zindabad (long live) chant was also shouted by PTI activists while the attorney talked to the press.
Gill informed media representatives that “this is a political matter,” “the Pakistan Army is the most holy institution,” and “it is vital we all respect the institutions” in response to the magistrate’s ruling.
Standing outside the court, he declared, “There is nothing to be embarrassed of in my words; the statements [were] made out of love for the army; they were not meant to anger anybody; they merely spoke about those bureaucratic authorities who had said inappropriate things.
However, Magistrate Shabbir granted the police’s motion and ordered a two-day physical remand. Additionally, the judge mandated that Gill appear in court on August 12.
