KARACHI – An anti-terrorism court on Monday rejected a plea of an investigating officer seeking a two-week physical remand of senior journalist Nasrullah Khan Chaudhry.
Justice Naimatullah Phulpoto directed that the scribe who works for Nai Baat newspaper be presented on November 14 along with a progress report, Pakistan Today reported.
The judge asked why the investigating officer was insisting on a 14-day remand.
The IO pointed out that a case relating to possession of proscribed literature had been registered against the journalist.
Security personnel last week raided Chaudhry’s home in Karachi and took him away.
The Pakistan Federal Union of Journalists has expressed concern over his ‘illegal detention’ and termed it an attack on press freedom.
