Islamabad - A Duty Judge of Islamabad District and Sessions Court yesterday granted physical remanded of Move on Pakistan’s chief to the police.

Islamabad police presented Chairman Move on Pakistan Muhammad Kamran before the Duty Judge Salman Badar on Saturday. The police informed the court that two accomplices of Kamran could not be arrested yet. The police said that they have to interrogate the accused therefore physical remand is required. After hearing the arguments, the court gave Kamran’s custody to the police.

Chairman of the Move on Pakistan party, Muhammad Kamran, was arrested from a rest house situated in Islamabad’s Aabpara area.

A little-known political party, Move on Pakistan had put up banners in 13 cities across the country during early July urging Chief of Army Staff Gen Raheel Sharif to impose martial law in the country and form a government of technocrats.

Interestingly, the banners sprang up overnight on all major thoroughfares in the 13 cities, even in cantonment areas, despite presence of several checkpoints and extra security personnel.

Islamabad police on July 14 registered a case against the party under sections 120-B (criminal conspiracy), 124-A (sedition), and 505 (statements conducing to public mischief) of the Pakistan Penal Code.

Move on Pakistan party leadership was granted protective bail by the Islamabad High Court on Friday, which also disposed of the case against the party and directed the petitioners to appear before the court on July 22.
