August 12, 2020
LAHORE (92 News) – A local court on Wednesday sent MPA Adnan Fareed among other 58 arrested PML-N workers to prison on 14-day judicial remand over clash outside the NAB office. During the hearing, the court has rejected the request of investigation officer to issue physical remand of the detainees who have been booked under eight provisions including that of blocking roads. Police presented the arrested PML-N workers, including MPA Adnan Fareed, before Judicial Magistrate Zulfiqar Bari who, after a preliminary hearing, sent them to jail on judicial remand. They are accused of stone-pelting and damaging public property outside Lahore NAB office ahead of party leader Maryam Nawaz’s appearance before the bureau. A lawyer representing the accused contended before the judicial magistrate that peaceful protest is a fundamental right of every citizen. He accused police of deliberately implicating his clients in the case. He pleaded with the court to discharge all the accused. A day earlier, violence ensued outside the NAB office as PML-N workers police contingents clashed shortly after the arrival of Maryam Nawaz there in a land case. Many people, including policemen and NAB officials, were injured and more than 50 were arrested after police fired tear gas when the PML-N workers started pelting them and the NAB office with stone.
