5 min read

In Islamabad, the court on Sunday remanded ex-federal minister Fawad Chaudhry for two days on a pre-trial detention order, just a day after a complaint was filed by a citizen in the Aabpara Police Station to charge him with bribery for requesting Rs5 million.

In addition to ordering the politician’s medical examination, the court also asked the police to ensure that the politician and his family were able to meet.

In response to the court’s orders, Fawad Chaudhary, his brother and lawyer, filed a petition on behalf of him before the magistrate, requesting recovery and release of his brother after he was arrested from his residence in Islamabad a day earlier.

During the hearing of the plea, the court also requested the Islamabad police for a report on the arrest of the politician during the hearing of the plea. The Judicial Magistrate Ahmed Shahzad Gondal ordered the police to provide this report.

Earlier, his wife, Hiba Fawad Chaudhry, had stated that her husband was picked up and taken away to an unidentified place without any explanation as to why he had been arrested.

On the day of the hearing, Fawad was detained by police for a period of time under police protection in the District Judicial Complex. His face was covered with a cloth, and his hands were chained using handcuffs.

In addition to the politician’s wife, Faisal Chaudhry, along with Faraz Chaudhry and Advocate Qamar Inayat Raja, who were also inside the courtroom to meet him after he had requested permission from duty judge Abbas Shah, the politico’s wife and some of his lawyers were also present inside the room.

Fawad’s brother as well as his lawyer questioned why Fawad’s face was covered with a cloth, while the politician’s brother disagreed.

According to the report, the police have requested a five-day remand for the ex-minister after a case was registered against him for accepting a Rs5 million bribe in exchange for his employment, and the police sought a five-day remand for the ex-minister.

In the first information report (FIR) filed against Fawad Chaudhary, the plaintiff claimed that the politician was bitter over the request for money, on the issue of which he threatened to kill me. He alleged that the former minister had received Rs5 million from the plaintiff.

In the meantime, Fawad has sought a judicial remand or the court to give him access to a doctor and he is asking either or both of those things. As well as having denied knowing the plaintiff, he also denied knowing the defendant.

As a former federal minister and a lawyer for the Supreme Court of Canada, I shouldn’t be insulted by this. There is no bathroom where a remand request is being sought”, he pleaded with the court.

There was a request by the former minister that the court provide him with a bathroom facility and that he may meet his children with the permission of the court.
