Pashtun Tahaffuz Movement (PTM) leader and Member of National Assembly from North Waziristan Mohsin Javed Dawar surrendered himself to the law on Thursday and was subsequently produced before an anti-terrorism court in Bannu for physical remand.
The investigation officer of the Counter-Terrorism Department (CTD) Bannu requested the court for 30-day police custody of the lawmaker. However, special ATC judge Babar Ali Khan remanded Dawar in police custody for eight days and asked the police to produce him before the court on June 7.
A video circulating on social media shows Dawar speaking at a local gathering. The committee told PTM leadership not to make provocative speeches in their rallies and wave Pakistan’s flag at their next protest.
The PTM delegation said that it will talk to its committee about these recommendations.
