In another instance involving alleged provocative comments against the security establishment, police have arrested jailed Pashtun Tahaffuz Movement leader and MNA Ali Wazir.
MNA Wazir has been detained in connection with two sedition proceedings since December 31, 2020.
On Monday, the investigating officer presented him before the judge of the Anti-Terrorism Court-II, claiming that MNA Wazir was arrested for organising a public rally on the orders of PTM chief Manzoor Pashteen, where they raised slogans and defamed the security establishment. The judge remanded the MNA until March 4.
The MNA was granted post-arrest bail on Nov. 30, 2021. The PTM has been protesting his detention outside the Sindh Assembly since Feb 13.
The party asked that the Sindh government drop the charges against the MNA.
