An Islamabad district and sessions court issued notices on Saturday to the investigating officer and prosecutor on the post-arrest bail plea of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) leader Shahbaz Gill. The petition requested the dismissal of the order of the judicial magistrate and asked for approval for Gill's physical remand. Earlier in the day, the judge had ordered to send the accused to jail on judicial remand. Later, the court dismissed the review petition filed by the police against the rejection of their application for Gill’s physical remand, declaring it “inadmissible”. Judicial Magistrate Shabbir, after hearing the arguments of the prosecutor and the accused's lawyers, decided to reject the request for further physical remand.
