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.

Last month, PTM protesters as an armed group led by Mohsin Dawar and Ali Wazir attacked Kharqamar check post, Boyya, in North Waziristan tribal district.

After the attack, Wazir was arrested for provoking the protestors to attack the security force’s check post. He was and subsequently presented before a local court in Bannu.
