Rejecting the police’s request for 10-day physical remand of former National Assembly (NA) speaker and PTI stalwart Asad Qaiser in the case of embezzlement of funds in the purchase of medical instruments, a court in Swabi on Tuesday granted to the police his two-day physical remand instead, reported 24NewsHD TV channel.
Earlier, Qaiser, who had been shifted to Swabi from Islamabad last night, was produced in the court of judicial magistrate Muhammad Khalil Khan.
Speaking to the media on the occasion, PTI stalwart said that he expected something good would come out of it.
He made it clear that he was in the PTI, and would remain part of it.
The former speaker, who had been picked up from his residence in Bani Gala, Islamabad on November 3, is facing the allegation of misappropriating funds allocated for the purchase of medical instruments for Gujju Khan Medical College.
