SARGODHA: Former Pakistan Peoples Party MPA Aslam Madhyana, involved in an alleged assault on a 60-year-old schoolteacher, was sent on a two-day physical remand on Thursday by an anti-terrorism court in Sargodha.
The Sargodha police had requested the court to send him on a three-day physical remand, however, the court only approved a two-day remand.
Madhyana’s counsel prayed to the court to not send him on a physical remand due to his declining health conditions.
The counsel of teacher Nafees Ahmad Khan informed the court that the police had not completed its investigation and that Madhyana needed to be handed over to police until the investigation is concluded.
Madhyana’s supporters grouped outside the court and chanted slogans demanding his release. The protestors also raised slogans, shouting that “injustice” was being done to Madhyana.
On Wednesday, Madhyana was sent on a one-day physical remand.
