A week ago, Imran was brought before the court by the police, who requested his physical remand. However, the court decided to place Imran under judicial remand instead, denying the bail plea made by his lawyer. During the court session, Riaz’s lawyer, Ali Mian Ashfaq, identified numerous flaws in the case, questioning the prosecution’s arguments and highlighting inconsistencies.

Ashfaq raised concerns about the case’s significance, wondering why the police hadn’t been aware of it for eight months. He also emphasized the lack of evidence connecting Riaz to the charges and the absence of any mention of the accused’s involvement in the FIR.
