The central president of the Ahle Sunnat Wal Jamaat (ASWJ) Allama Aurangzeb Farooqi has been handed over to the Lahore police on physical remand for two days.
Anti-Terrorism Court (ATC)-1 on Tuesday handed Farooqi over to the Shahdara police who were in Rawalpindi to shift the accused to Lahore.
However, the court has ordered the police to present him on July 7 when the court will frame charges.
Besides the present case registered by Counter Terrorism Department officials against Farooqi, more than 18 cases are registered against him in different police stations across Punjab.
The ASWJ leader was arrested by CTD officials from Taxila while heading to Havelian on a personal visit on June 6.
