New developments reported in the case against TLP Chief Khadim Hussain Rizvi
A court in Lahore on Wednesday granted a 20-day physical remand of Tehreek-e-Labbaik Pakistan (TLP) chief Khadim Hussain Rizvi.
A petition over the matter was filed by Civil Lines police which produced the cleric before the court earlier in the day, seeking a 30-day physical remand.
According to officials, a photogrammetric test of the TLP chief was cited as the reason for seeking physical remand.
In November last year, Rizvi arrested after the government ordered law enforcement agencies to begin a countrywide crackdown on the far-right religious outfit.
Rizvi was arrested after TLP-led protests paralysed normal life across the country in the wake of the Supreme Court’s decision to acquit Aasia Bibi.
