In a reply submitted to the LHC, the IGP said that the Fawad Chaudhary is not in the custody of the Punjab police and he is in the custody of the Islamabad police. "I received the WhatsApp message that Fawad Chaudhary had been taken to Islamabad. I would have presented him in the LHC had I come to know on time," he stated.

Earlier on Wednesday, the police had arrested Fawad Chaudhary from Lahore. He was produced in the Cantonment Courts to get his transit remand. On the court order, he underwent a medical examination.

On Tuesday, a case was registered against Fawad Chaudhary at the Kohsar police station on the complaint of the ECP secretary.
