The Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) arrested on Wednesday Tariq Mahmood for his alleged involvement in the leaked video controversy involving an accountability court Judge Arshad Malik .

The FIA presented the suspect before a court where Civil Judge Shaista Kundi granted the agency a two-day physical remand of Mahmood. The court has ordered to present him again on Friday along with his medical report, local media reported.

At a presser, Maryam Nawaz showed videos of the judge telling Nasir Butt, a loyal fan of Nawaz Sharif, that he was pressured into convicting Nawaz in the Al-Azizia case. Following the video controversy, the Islamabad High Court had then ordered the removal of Judge Malik from his post as the accountability court judge.
