Ali Wazir sent to Peshawar jail after Bannu court rejects plea for extension in physical remand
BANNU – An anti-terrorism court in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa has dismissed plea seeking extension in physical remand of MNA Ali Wazir.

The court was hearing a case pertaining to the recent clash between Pashtun Tahaffuz Movement (PTM) and the security forces in which three people were killed and five soldiers were injured.

Following the hearing, Wazir was transferred to Peshawar Central jail.

Earlier, the anti-terrorism court had granted eight-day physical remand of MNA Ali Wazir to Counter Terrorism Department (CTD) officials in the case.
