In a major development, the nephew of PTI Chairman Imran Khan Barrister Hassaan Niazi has been handed over to Quetta police on a one-day remand.

The court approved the remand and also directed the investigating officer to keep the accused in safe custody. After getting permission the Quetta police took Hassaan Niazi from Islamabad court and left for Balochistan.

The news of Hassaan Niazi being taken to Quetta has sparked condemnations as questions are being raised on the remand and it is being claimed that the FIR against him in Quetta is fake.

Pertinent to mention that on Thursday, an Islamabad district and sessions court sent Hassaan Niazi to jail on 14-day judicial remand in a case related to misbehaving with police officials.

Duty Magistrate Mureed Abbas rejected the police’s request for an extension in Hassaan Niazi’s physical remand and said police had failed to recover anything from the suspect. He added that Niazi should be presented before the court on April 6.

Hassaan Niazi was re-arrested on Monday in a separate case as he was leaving the Federal Judicial Complex (FJC) after securing pre-arrest bail in three cases. A new first information report (FIR) — which relates to the alleged misbehavior with officials — was registered against him at the Ramna police station.

On Tuesday, a district and sessions court remanded Niazi into police custody for two days. The same day, Niazi filed an appeal against the decision. Meanwhile, PTI leaders termed the arrest of Hassaan Niazi as an ‘abduction’ and demanded the superior judiciary take notice.
